Scottish Roman Law Moot


The Scottish Universities held their Roman Law Moot on Saturday. The problem involved issues of fixing a price in a contract of sale in an actio venditi by reference to the ‘market price’ and a third party advisor, and specificatio in a rei vindicatio in relation to glass which had been used to make a stained glass panel. Edinburgh made it to the final (Beatrice Bru and Young Yang) after winning 1 and losing 1 in the round robin, and whilst Glasgow ultimately won the trophy, our Senior, Beatrice Bru, took home the prize for best orator having significantly improved throughout the day. The teams were all very enthusiastic and had a fun day. David Johnston KC seemed to have a nice time, too.
