The 2023 Competition

We ran a hybrid competition this year which combined the advantages of an online competition with those of an in person one. In-person regionals in Sheffield and London together with an online regional took place on 18th February 2023. 34 law schools took part with 12 qualifying for the in-person finals hosted by Oxford Brookes University on 11th March 2023.

Congratulations to Tom Eyles and Steph Haynes, the team from Oxford Brookes, who won the competition and will represent England at the international competition in Maastricht in April. Congratulations also to Emma Layton and Hadley Middleton from Swansea who, as the highest ranking Welsh team, will represent Wales in Maastricht.
