Exeter alumni Andrew Worthley chairs Devon Chambers moot final in the UK Supreme Court

“This week Exeter University was proud to host the Devon Chambers moot final in the UK Supreme Court. The four participating students Emma Swindell, Lauren Holmes, Graeme Whitcher and Ella Worsley tackled a complex and interesting moot case created by Lecturer in Law Phillipa Collins regarding discrimination in the provision of services. The judging panel consisted of Charlotte MacKenzie of Staple Inn Chambers, Tom Lowenthal from the University of Oxford, Professor Ronan McCrea from UCL, and was chaired by Exeter alumni Andrew Worthley of Magdalen Chambers. The advocates did justice to the impressive surroundings of Court 1 and all delivered accomplished and professional submissions, dealing with various difficult interventions from the judging panel. Second-year LLB undergraduate Ella Worsley emerged a worthy winner, demonstrating particularly impressive legal research, professionally structured submissions along with a persuasive, calm and fluent delivery. Magdalen Chambers is always proud to support the University of Exeter’s Law School and the next generation of up-and-coming barristers.”
