The 2024 Competition

After our successful 2023 competition, we are again going to run a hybrid competition which combines the advantages of an online competition with those of an in person one. Entries are now open. Please complete an entry form below. Please note that you will then be directed to our Eventbrite page where you can choose your regional location and pay the entry fee. Your entry is only complete when you have completed the Eventbrite page. Please also make sure you sign up to our mailing list if this is your first time.

There will be in-person regionals hosted by the University of York and the University of Law London on 17th February 2024 and one online regional.  The in-person finals will be (provisionally)  hosted by Birmingham University on 9th March 2024.

We are also hoping to run a Training Day on 3rd February 2024. More information to follow.

The topic for this year’s competition is Serious Crime.  For teams that reach the finals, some of the scenarios may include elements of International Humanitarian Law, the topic for the 2024 International Competition. We do not expect any detailed knowledge of that area of law.

Basic factual information will be in the memoranda issued ahead of each competition round. Where appropriate, we may give advance information on areas of law that may be relevant.

Additional materials are available in our Teachers Resources section. Please get in touch if you are a faculty member and do not yet have access.

Please check out our rules about entering and taking part as there have been some changes this year,

Closing date for entries is 10th November 2024.
