Congratulations to the winners of Oxford Brookes University’s School of Law GDL mooting competition that took place last night at the grand Headington Hill Hall in Oxford.

The occasion was particularly special because Oxford Brookes University have renamed the competition in honour of our former, now retired member, Richard Benson QC. Chambers were delighted to have been able to sponsor the moot and present the new mooting cup to Richard.

Richard has given up his free time to mentor students in the art of advocacy at Oxford Brookes University for nearly 10 years. Renaming the moot to become “The Richard Benson QC Mooting Competition” is a small token of thanks for all the support he gives to students and to Chambers.
