Corpus Student on Winning Oxford Law Moot Team

On 22 February 2009, the University of Oxford won the fiftieth annual White & Case United Kingdom Philip C Jessup International Law Moot Court Competition, the largest mooting competition in the world. Katie Johnson, a second year Law student at Corpus Christi, alongside Daniel Baker (Harris Manchester), Ailene Chou (University) Richard Hoyle (Brasenose) and Lynn Yu (Exeter) won all six of their competition moots, culminating in a succesful Grand Final against University College London, judged by a panel of seven leading international lawyers, chaired by Lord Bingham. This places the Oxford team ahead of nineteen other teams drawn from both universities and Inns of Court throughout the UK, and marks the second consecutive victory of the team in the UK Championships. Katie and the team will be competing in the World Championship in Washington DC. Further news of the win may be found on the Faculty of Law's website here.
