Strathclyde Mooters Triumph in Sheriff Principal Cup Final!

Two second year students at Strathclyde Law School, Sara Akram (acting as Junior Counsel) and Harbani Kohli (acting as Senior Counsel), triumphed in the final of the Sheriff Principal Cup. 

The final took place in the august premises of the Royal Faculty of Procurators in Glasgow and was presided over by Sheriff Principal Anwar. 

Mooters Hannah Nibloe (acting as Junior Counsel) and Niamh Crossan (acting as Senior Counsel) represented Glasgow Caledonian. 

Both teams put in very strong performances as they grappled with the issue of whether the police could be liable in delict for harm caused by one protestor to an individual taking part in a counterprotest. 

The runners up, representing Glasgow Caledonian University, were strong contenders. 

In awarding the cup to the Strathclyde Team, Sheriff Principal Anwar commended both teams for their fine performances, stating that she would readily welcome all four of the mooters into her court given the excellent standard they had demonstrated.

The Strathclyde team were cheered on by other Strathclyders who came along, including Mooting Society office bearers  Aidan Fisher (President) and Esra Alfadil (Vice-President) and Professor Wolffe (staff coordinator). 

The Royal Faculty of Procurators in Glasgow kindly hosted the event and provided refreshments for all who attended to support the teams.
