Aqeel H Noorali Essay Competition

Deka Chambers organises a legal essay writing competition in memory of dear friend and talented barrister, Aqeel H Noorali.

Aqeel was a talented and dedicated barrister who particularly enjoyed arguing novel points of law.

We want to honour Aqeel’s memory by encouraging the next generation of lawyers to prepare thoughtful, cogent, and persuasive written arguments: a talent Aqeel possessed in abundance.

Applications for the 2024 competition will be opening shortly and details will appear on this page.

Entrants should be aged between 16 – 19 from non-fee paying schools in England and Wales at the time of entry to the competition.

The top prize is £1,000 and a mini-pupillage, and there are also cash prizes for runners-up.
