TWO law students at Oxford Brookes University will compete in the national finals of the leading national criminal advocacy competition this month.

Bramble Badenach-Nicolson and Carola Binney qualified for the competition finals in June and will now go up against seven other teams on the weekend of July 21.

Marc Howe, Principal Lecturer in Law and joint team coach said he was 'extremely proud' of the students.

He said: “Competing in advocacy competitions greatly enhances student employability and allow students to gain invaluable skills in mock court room settings."
