Mooting Society Announcement

Welcome (or welcome back) from the Mooting Society!

Mooting is, in essence, arguing fictional cases. Our internal competitions are open to everyone, and are a great way to improve your legal research and public speaking skills. They are judged by practicing solicitors and advocates, so participating is also an excellent networking opportunity. There are cash prizes from corporate sponsors, and some great social events.

We’d love for you to get involved, and we’re hosting a Model Moot and Advocacy Skills evening on September 26th at 6pm in Appleton Lecture Theatre A for you to come see what we’re all about. In addition to a mooting demonstration, Paul Reid, Advocate at Ampersand Stable, former Edinburgh Law Lecturer and Mooting Competition Winner, will be delivering a talk on how to win your case and impress a judge. There will be an opportunity to join the society and have a few drinks with us on the evening!
