F&Qs:

What is mooting or a moot?

Mooting is the act of taking part in a mock court scenario and representing one of the parties in the hearing. This will involve making prepared legal arguments to the judge in the case but also answering questions from the judge, testing your ability to think on the spot.

I don't want to be a barrister, should I join?

Yes of course! This society is not just about developing your advocacy skills and other attributes most useful in pursuing a career at the Bar. Developing confidence skills and becoming more familiar with legal processes and systems are useful to all areas of legal practice. In moots there is also a very big focus on research as well as advocacy, which caters more for those who are set on being Solicitors. 

I don’t feel comfortable speaking in front of everyone?

That’s alright! There is no pressure to agree to speak in front of everyone. You may want to get involved in the research part of the moot or simply be a friendly face in the crowd for those that wish to. We also plan to hold workshops on improving confidence and public speaking, so it may be you feel more comfortable after those sessions.
