On Thursday 5 June 2014, The Graham Battersby Mooting Cup and Prize was awarded to a student at the School of Law.
The Graham Battersby Mooting Cup and Prize is awarded to one student each year that excels in the skill of Mooting throughout the year.
Philip Armitage received the prize for the 2013/2014 academic year. Philip has just completed his Graduate Diploma in Law and is now leaving Sheffield to undertake the Bar Professional Training Course in London.
Philip has been heavily involved in numerous internal and external mooting competitions, excelling throughout. He progressed to the final of the Edward Bramley Law Society mooting competition and also took part in external competitions as well.
We were extremely lucky to have Graham Battersby in attendance to present the Cup to Philip. Graham is a former Professor of the School of Law. Graham supported Mooting whilst he was a member of staff at the School of law and continues to provide support through sponsorship of the prize.
