The School of Law, Queen Mary University of London is pleased to present the final of 2014 George Hinde Moot. This competition has been established for approximately forty years with academic staff and practising barristers playing an important role in judging and coaching, as a result the School has a strong and successful mooting body.

The final is judged by a senior member of the judiciary and in 2014 the School is delighted that Sir Brian Leveson has agreed to oversee the competition.

Sir Brian Leveson

Sir Brian Leveson was called to the Bar by Middle Temple in 1970. He practised on the Northern Circuit from chambers in Liverpool, across the full range of common law, crime, personal injury and commercial work. He was appointed Queen’s Counsel in 1986, and was a Recorder and a Deputy High Court Judge. He was appointed a Judge of the High Court, Queen’s Bench Division, in 2000, and served as a Presiding Judge of the Northern Circuit. In 2005 he was appointed to the new position of Deputy Senior Presiding Judge and in 2006, following his appointment as a Lord Justice of Appeal, he became Senior Presiding Judge.

In 2009, he was appointed Chairman of the Sentencing Council, a position he still holds whilst heading this Inquiry. He is an honorary fellow of Merton College, Oxford and has received an honorary LLD from the University of Liverpool.
