Organised by the St. Hilda’s College Law Society, the semi and grand finals of the University of Oxford 7 King’s Bench Walk Commercial Law Moot Competition 2019, which is now in its fifth year, was held at 7 King’s Bench Walk in London.

The moot saw contestants from undergraduates to DPhil candidates argue difficult points of law regarding attribution and the law of illegality in an appeal to the Supreme Court from the orders made in Singularis Holdings Ltd (in liq) v Daiwa Capital Markets Europe Ltd [2018] EWCA Civ 84.

The grand final was judged by the Rt Hon Sir Stephen Tomlinson and the Hon Sir Jeremy Cooke, which saw excellent advocacy by both sides. The results of the finals saw the respondents (Charles Redmond and Lee Kay Howe) winning the argument, and the appellants (Jackson Wherrett and Rebecca McEwen) winning the overall moot.

The Moot was generously sponsored by 7 King’s Bench Walk.

Congratulations to Jackson and Rebecca, and to all those who participated in the Moot!
