Oxford Wins 2021 Landmark Chambers Property Moot

We are proud to announce that the team representing the University of Oxford has won the Landmark Chambers Property Moot 2021.

The Landmark Chambers Property Moot takes place each year and touches on many topics within property law that go far beyond the FHS Syllabus. This year the Oxford team consisted of two undergraduates: Alexander Yean (Exeter College) and Bethany Arrowsmith (New College).

In the first round of the competition, held in November 2020, the team came up against Queen Mary University of London. The problem focused on the interpretation of a commercial lease and in particular, the meaning of “demand” and “vacant possession”. Prior to the moot, the teams exchanged written submissions, and developed these in 10-minute oral submissions on the day. Having completed their moot, the team attended a presentation on life at Chambers, and took part in a workshop based on Fearn v Tate
