UNDERGRAD AND GDL FINAL
National Speed Mooting Competition 2022 in association with BPP
Undergraduate and GDL Final
Monday 18th July 2022 at 7.30 pm on Zoom
This year, the undergraduate and GDL National Speed Mooting Competition was held across two heats. The winners of these heats will come together for one final moot to determine the champion of this year's competition.
Matthew Johnson (Heat A Winner) will take on Cason Yong (Heat B Winner).
Anyone that would like to watch this final moot is more than welcome to sign up for free below to watch this final live. The final will be judged by practitioners.
As a bonus, there is a Q&A session with practitioners whilst the judges are deliberating. The focus of the Q&A session is on advocacy. We will have practitioners on hand to answer any questions that you may have. You can submit questions in advance or ask questions on the night.
The names of those involved and the full schedule can be seen below.
This will be a great opportunity for those that are new to mooting or wishing to hone their skills to witness a high quality moot. This will give you the perfect opportunity to see how a moot works and learn some good tips. During the Q&A session you should receive advice in relation to practical advocacy.

As always, a well organised event with great topics of discussion and opinions shared by the panellists. There was an interesting variance of questions ranging from the personal developments of legal careers to date, how things stand in today’s world, and what aspiring lawyers can expect to face in the future with changes to the process. Great job, I enjoyed it.
"This event was very relevant and the faculty helpful and supportive. The faculty are all 'coal face' practitioners and were generous in their comments and suggestions. The platform and video-conferencing was able to support the multiple delegates. The event was free and the questions were moderated. Insights were given regarding pupillage application, mini-pupillages and practice in the early years bar. The moderator kept the session to time and relevant rather than allowing a rambling finish. Overall very good and thankyou."
