We are delighted that you are interested in the Mooting Society! The society provides its members with the opportunity to practice their legal skills and enhance their CV. Read on to find out more!
What is Mooting?
Mooting is the art of presenting a legal argument in a mock court case concerning a contentious point of law in an Appellate Court. Student mooters will be paired up and act as advocates for opposing parties in the matter.
We aim to equip our members with advocacy skills, such as public speaking and legal research, that will be highly useful in their future legal careers.
The Mooting Society runs four internal Mooting competitions each year, namely the First Year Contract Law Moot, First Year Tort Law Moot, Second/Final Year Moot, and the Non-Competitive Moot. The Society also fields members in external competitions against other universities and provides training for all members to hone their abilities. In addition, the Society provides opportunities for networking with practising Barristers and Solicitors who will provide great insight into legal practice!
