So ... What is mooting?
Mooting is an activity with the purpose of preparing you for a courtroom and legal enviroment. A moot is a simulated courtroom in which teams of mooters (Appellants/Respondents) present prepared arguements surrounding a hypothetical case to a standing Judge. The moot ends when the teams submissions are over at which point the Judge will give a judgement, feedback and declare a winning moot team.
Mooting is a fantastic opportunity to experience the pressurized setting of a courtroom or public speaking task in a controlled and constructive manor. Being able to present your submissions in a clear, concise, controlled way is at the heart of being an advocate and therefore at the heart of mooting, at Keele Mooting society we hone these skills through our workshops on performance stylisation.
Having the knowledge and awareness of the evidence you need for your hypothetical case and the tools to find this evidence are essential, at Keele Mooting Society we focus on the skill of effective legal research!
Mooting experience is vital for a career in law and is foundational to your experience as an advocate.
What events can you expect in the following year?
- External Mooting Competitions
- External speakers (Take a look at our advocacy talk and bar cv workshop with the Inns of Court College of Advocacy!)
- Internal Mooting Competitions
- Mock moots
- Mock trials
- Access to a legal network of opportunities and professionals
At Keele Mooting society we are determined to make mooting accessible to all. We will be hosting events and workshops for all skill levels from beginner to advanced.
While mooting is a legal activity this society is open to all students who have a passion for advocacy or wish to learn more about the skills we teach.
We hope to see you all in Keele's Moot Court very soon!
