2022/2023 Competition

The 2023 DWF Lord Jones Mooting Competition was held in February 2023 at the Scrymgeour Building, home of Dundee Law School. Twelve teams from eight universities (Aberdeen, Dundee, Strathclyde, Edinburgh, Glasgow, St Andrews, Stirling and Abertay) attended and appeared before members of Faculty and leading Scots legal academics. The teams mooted both sides of a delictual issue of vicarious liability, before the strongest performers advanced to the knockout stages. The business end of the competition saw a first semi-final appearance for teams representing Abertay and Edinburgh Napier, and the latter went on to win the Final, which was judged by Lady Drummond.

Prizes were kindly provided by DWF for the winners and runners-up, who also funded the catering provided to participants on the day. Dundee’s Mooting Society was delighted that the event was such a success, with all involved having an enjoyable time in Dundee.
