Last week, we had the honor of hosting student barristers from the Middle Temple in London. Our professors hosted these special guests in their homes, and our students had the opportunity to moot against their British counterparts. The bench for the competition was comprised of Pepperdine faculty and a Bencher of the Middle Temple who visited Pepperdine along with the student barristers.
Even better than the opportunity for competition, our students had the opportunity to make new friends! The picture above, including both our moot court student leaders and the student barristers from London, demonstrates the beautiful camaraderie that developed in such a short period of time. Our students were sad to see their new friends go!
