9 St John Street Mooting Competition

On Thursday 7th April 2022, 9 St John Street hosted the final of the University of Manchester Bar and Advocacy Society Mooting Competition.

The Competition has been sponsored by 9 St John Street this year. Barristers from 9 St John Street judged the quarter-final and semi-final at the University, before inviting the finalists into Chambers for the final. After a 2 year break, owing to the pandemic, it was great to be able to invite law students back into Chambers for an event.

The final of the moot was judged by Dr Ed Morgan QC. He commented, after the event, that “Each of the finalists demonstrated a high standard of preparation and advocacy” and that observed that they should all be extremely proud of the way they had conducted themselves.

However, there could only be one winner. 9 St John Street warmly congratulate Miss Mengruo Huang, who won the competition. She was presented with a trophy and £100 gift voucher. In addition, she will be invited back to Chambers for a 3 day mini-pupillage as part of her prize.

After the event, the finalists and students from the University enjoyed drinks and light refreshments in Chambers.

Chambers would like to thank Jamie Hill who has organised the competition.
