Property Moot Competition

Landmark Chambers’ Property Moot has proved to be a thoroughly enjoyable and educational experience from the first round through to the Grand Final. Taking part in the competition has allowed me to learn about Landmark Chambers and the types of work that its members undertake. I have also had the chance to argue interesting and new areas of law, make new friends and contacts, and was lucky enough to moot in the Royal Courts of Justice before Mr Justice Holgate. Adam Walton, University of York

Our annual Property Moot Competition provides students who are particularly interested in property law with an opportunity to develop their understanding of the subject and to gain some insight into the realities of practice through meeting members of Landmark’s Property Team.

The competition comprises of three knock-out rounds followed by a Grand Final, which traditionally takes place at the Royal Courts of Justice. The two individual competitors who obtain the highest scores in the Grand Final will each be awarded £500 and the opportunity to undertake a mini-pupillage in Chambers.

Property Moot Competition 2019-2020

Following the success of the past five years, we will be running our Property Moot Competition for undergraduate law students for the sixth consecutive year.

The first round of the competition will take place on Saturday 23 November 2019 at our offices 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 Property Bar. To that end, and in addition to the moots themselves, competitors will be given the opportunity to participate in a property law workshop with members of Chambers’ Property Team and to ask our Pupillage Committee questions about the pupillage application process and the structure of pupillage itself. The competition concludes with an informal drinks reception, at which both our members and employees will answer competitors’ questions about Landmark in a more informal setting.

Whilst all moot problems will be property-based, we are aware that there are some areas of a property practice which remain wholly unfamiliar to undergraduate students, and we shall be mindful of this throughout the competition.

Entering a Team

If you are an LLB student and would like to register your university ahead of this year’s competition please send an email to propertymoot@landmarkchambers.co.uk before Friday 11 October 2019.

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.
