Winner of the Property Bar Association's Essay Prize

I am absolutely delighted to announce that I have been named as the first-place winner of the Property Bar Association's Essay Prize competition! My essay will be published in the forthcoming issue of Estate's Gazette (EG), and I will be formally receiving my award this autumn from the Association's Honorary President, the Rt Hon the Master of the Rolls (whose judicial decisions feature in my prize-winning essay).  In addition to the cash prize, I am also honoured to be receiving a copy the invaluable practitioner's text Meggary & Wade, which is edited by inter alia, my own land law lecturer, Professor Dixon FRSA (whose work is also referenced in the winning essay).

Winning a moot!

I was very pleased to, last night, win the City Law School Criminal Law Moot! In accordance with the times, part  of the moot was conducted by videoconference.  Although I am not at all interested in criminal law as an area of future practice, I nonetheless greatly enjoyed the moot.

My question on a BBC podcast

On the most recent episode of 'The Alex Salmond Trial' podcast, BBC Scotland's Philip Sim was kind enough to discuss and help answer an e-mailed question of mine on the decision to choose anonymity over pseudonymity in media coverage of the high-profile trial.   The discussion prompted by the question is very interesting, and well-worth a listen.

(As this post references live criminal proceedings—albeit obliquely, comments have been disabled out of an abundance of caution.)

Moot judging!

I recently had the great privilege of judging the finals of the University of Westminster Inter-Varsity Mooting Competition, sponsored by the University's Bar Society.  Many congratulations to all the competitors on an excellent night of mooting!
