Welcome to the online home of the London Universities Mooting Shield. LUMS is an annual mooting league competition, featuring teams of undergraduate law students from London’s Universities. More information about the competition and our sponsors, including information about the teams and how to take part, can be found within this site.

With ten competing universities, and rounds at the Royal Courts of Justice and at the Honourable Society of the Middle Temple, 2013-14 was another memorable year for the competition and all those taking part.
