Mooting

What is Mooting?

A moot is a mock court hearing in which two teams of two students argue fictitious civil or criminal cases before a panel of judges. The skills developed in mooting are essential for upcoming barristers and solicitors, which will improve advocacy, research and writing skills.

Through mooting you will be able to garner a greater appreciation of the law and learn how to think more like a lawyer; not only will it improve your ability to speak in public, it will train you to deal with situations that require you to think quickly on your feet.

The fictitious cases will relate to topics which you have studied or are currently studying.
