Moots

CONSULT THE ADVOCACY PAGES FOR ADDITIONAL INFORMATION ON MOOTS AND ADVOCACY OPPORTUNITIES

Please view the following video, in addition to the information on this webpage, for information about the academic year 2020-2021's moot: https://youtu.be/6nvheD_J3D4

We have every intention of running our world-class mooting program for 2020-21, but at this time we wait to hear from different moot competitions to know if they intend to hold a moot. We will continue to update this page as information is made available to us.

Participating in a competitive moot can be one of the most rewarding experiences at law school.  The Common Law Section offers a wide selection of moots covering different subject areas.  While most moots test appellate advocacy skills, others require participants to demonstrate their abilities in trial, arbitration or other settings.  

The moots in the upcoming 2020-2021 academic year are selected from the following list and will be announced during the moot information session. Budgetary restraints means we may not participate in all of the listed moots every year: content is subject to change
