How to Qualify as an External Mooter
Typically mooters that have performed well in the internal competitions (i.e. semi-finalists and above) will be selected by the Master and Mistress of the Moots and offered the opportunity to represent the University in external competitions. Selected mooters will be invited to an interview, where they will be required to work through a moot problem in order to allow assessment of their analytical skills.
This university has a long and rich history with competing externally including winning the ESU competition and very recently having finalists and semi finalists in OUP and ESU. Also this year (2016) we won the Herbert Smith Freehills National Corporate Law Moot.
