Queen Mary University (QMU) Pro Bono Society has teamed up with a local East London school to offer mooting competitions, judged by 25 Bedford Row QC Rudi Fortson.
St Paul’s Way Trust School sixth formers will learn about the role of a barrister in court through debates on the defamation act and immigration.
QMU Pro Bono Society president Axel-Charles Monin Nylund said: “The idea is that these local schools might not have the opportunity to hold competitions but when the sixth formers interested in the law go on to write applications for university it will hopefully help them to draw on their experiences.”
He added: “It is meant to give these kids an insight into what it is like to advocate and to do legal research. A lot of students here want to practise their mooting skills; it is a good experience for both the sixth formers and QMU students.”
The society plans to repeat the moot on a bigger scale in the future, with further support from law firms.
