A Beckton law student is one step away from a chance to appear at the Old Bailey in the final of a national competition.
Ng Lee Yin, who attends BPP University Law School, and her competition partner Racheal Muldoon have reached the semi-final of the FTP Kingsland Cup and Prize Moot.
The pair, both 23, will take on teams from City University and City Law School in a mock court challenge on Friday, April 17.
The winners will be handed a place in the grand final, where they will moot – or simulate court proceedings – at the Old Bailey.
Lee Yin and Racheal reached the semi-final after their first round written submission impressed the panel of judges.

Lee Yin said: “In the semi-final, we are not entirely sure what to expect.

“However, if the last problem was anything to go by, it will probably be challenging and interesting to research.”
It isn’t the first time Lee Yin has reached this stage of a moot competition.
She was a semi-finalist in the University of Southampton Inns of Court Moot earlier this year and in January was crowned the Gray’s Inn Senior Moot champion.
