The Grand Final of the undergraduate Cuppers Mooting Competition will be held virtually at 1630 on 2 March 2021. The final will see Bethany Arrowsmith and Ruth Flame from New College and Caroline Green and Nadia Roberts from St Anne's College moot in front of Christopher Parker QC, Nicholas Peacock QC, and Gregory Banner QC from Maitland Chambers.
The final will start at 1630. At 1800 there will also be a virtual Q&A with members of Maitland Chambers that all students are welcome to attend. Following the Q&A, the judges will announce the results of the Grand Final.
The Q&A will give all students the opportunity to find out more about a career as a commercial chancery barrister, including why it may be just the thing for you – even if you’re currently thinking of becoming a solicitor, pursuing a different area of practice, or haven’t considered a career in law at all. Three members of Maitland Chambers – James Aldridge QC, Narinder Jhittay and Maxim Cardew – will provide an insight into what the job involves at different levels of seniority. They will also share their top tips for bolstering your CV and making your applications stand out when applying for pupillage.
If you would like to spectate the final and/or attend the Q&A, please fill out the following form by 10am on 2 March 2021 to receive the meeting links: https://forms.gle/N5TWcBVyyUv8aQjm8
