Southampton Property Association: mock trial  

April 5, 2019

Property barrister and sitting judge at the First Tier Tribunal Max Thorowgood, presided over a light-hearted mock tribunal trial as part of the Southampton Property Association (SPA’s) annual CPD event on 5 April.

Delegates said they found the mock trial of an adverse possession case ‘interesting from a work perspective’ and ‘entertaining’. Property and public law barristers Joshua Swirsky and Alexander Campbell cross-examined the ‘witnesses’: Emma Cory-Wright and Alex Cooper from law firm Paris Smith.

Thank you to everyone who attended the event at Southampton’s Mayflower Theatre. Ticket sales raised more than £1300 for Hampshire homelessness charity, The Society of St James – the SPA’s charity for the year.
