Law student team reaches quarterfinals of international competition law moot

Adrian Langley and Michael Craig

Twelve teams from across the world stepped into the shoes of legal counsel, representing either the competition authority or the defending firm in front of high-profile panels of competition law experts.

The Leicester team did exceptionally well. Adrian and Michael qualified for the oral round on the basis of a 40-page written submission. They won two heats on the first day of the competition, and proceeded to the quarterfinals on day two, which they narrowly lost to a team of postgraduate students from King’s College. Adrian and Michael demonstrated great advocacy skills, and proved their competition law expertise by answering probing questions of the judging panels. The Leicester team was coached by Dr Anne Witt and Dr Sebastian Peyer.

The team from the National University of Singapore won the competition.
