It has been designed to provide students with an opportunity to apply planning and environmental law in a public law context, and gain insight into some of Chambers’ key practice areas, prior to applying for pupillage.
LLB, LLM, GDL and BPTC students have attended from over 50 different universities and compete in front of a range of Landmark’s barristers.
The first round of the competition will take place in-person on Saturday 18 November 2023, at our Chambers in London. During the first round every student who enters the moot will be provided with the opportunity not only to hone their research, drafting and advocacy skills, but also to hear more from us about life at Landmark and at the Planning and Environmental Bar. To that end, and in addition to the moots themselves, competitors will be given the opportunity to participate in a Planning and Environmental law workshop with members of Chambers’ Planning and Environmental Teams and ask our Pupillage Committee questions about the pupillage application process and the structure of pupillage itself.
We are aware that there are some areas of planning and environmental practice which remain wholly unfamiliar to students and, whilst all moot problems will be public law based, we emphasise that no prior knowledge of planning or environmental law is required in order to participate. Furthermore, we will endeavour to provide useful resources such as sample skeleton arguments in order to assist competitors with participating in the moots.
Entering a Team
If you are an LLB, LLM, GDL or BPTC student and would like to register your university ahead of this year’s competition please send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org before Friday 20 October 2023.
Please note that Landmark Chambers will only accept one team per University and would therefore prefer to be contacted by a member of faculty or the person responsible for the organisation of external moots.
