The third annual Oxford Legal Assistance Public Law Moot took place on 3 May 2014 at Keble College. The competition was opened to post-graduate students for the first time this year, and the mooters ranged in experience from first year undergraduates through to DPhil students.

The competition is organised in conjunction with Oxford Legal Assistance (‘OLA’), the only pro bono organisation open to undergraduate law students within the Oxford Law Faculty. To tie in with the OLA immigration law clinic, the Public Law Moot focuses on issues within immigration law, set in their wider public law context. The winners of the competition are offered the opportunity to undertake work experience with OLA’s partner, Turpin and Miller.

This year, the Grand Final of the competition was judged by the Rt Hon Sir Stephen Sedley. The competition was followed by a dinner at St Giles House, St John’s College.
