Middle Temple

UNC School of Law students and British barristers-in-training at the Middle Temple Society in London, England, have participated in an exchange program that takes students from their home country to host country to learn about the legal system and compete in friendly moot court competitions.

This annual moot court competition is a part of the Holderness Moot Court Bench and involves the 2L International Team members. British students come to UNC on odd-numbered falls in September for a week and the UNC participants travel to London for a week during even-numbered years. To participate, a J.D. student has to be a member of the Holderness 2L International Team. A moot problem is devised by the traveling side of the program.

The Middle Temple Society is part of a system of Inns, or educational and social societies, to which all practicing British barristers belong. Barristers-in-training who have received the British equivalent of an undergraduate legal education receive the rest of their professional education through the Inn.

The UNC - Middle Temple Moot Court Competition Program has been graciously sponsored by Richard Wilmot-Smith, a former Morehead Scholar as an undergraduate at UNC-CH and a Bencher with the Honourable Society of the Middle Temple, for more than 10 years.
