Past projects

To further its aims, the UKLSA has conducted a large number of projects each year since it was founded in 2008. Some of the more recent projects include:

Mock Trial ‘Advocate of the Year’ competition

This Mock Trial competition is different from the Annual National Mooting & Advocacy Competition.
