The XXIV Old Buildings UCL-KCL Inter-Varsity Moot is a highlight in the UCL Laws external mooting programme. This year, the teams were asked to prepare submissions on a problem regarding Quistclose trusts and the equitable rules of tracing and claiming. The moot was judged by barristers from XXIV Old Buildings.

Following strong performances from all participants, the UCL team were announced the winners and Christopher Moss was named the best advocate of the evening by the judges. The UCL team were awarded the London Law Varsity Cup which will remain in Bentham House until the next UCL-KCL moot. 

The mooters would like to extend special thanks to the judges and the organisers from the UCL Law Society, Alex Moja (Senior Moots Officer) and Karolina Kopczynska (Senior Head Judge, Advocacy Sub-Committee).
