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 2021-2022's moot: https://youtu.be/6nvheD_J3D4

We will continue to run our world-class mooting program for 2021-22. At this time, not every moot competition has confirmed if their moot is in-person, or virtual. As we receive this information, we will update the list below.

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 2021-2022  academic year are selected from the following list and will be announced during the moot information session. Budgetary restraints mean we may not participate in all of the listed moots every year: content is subject to change. Of note, you do not select a "moot course" during course selection. You must try out in September, and if you make it onto a team, in most cases, you must drop your January course.
