Welcome to Warwick Law Society's Mooting page!

Here you can find out all you need to know about Mooting, access documents including the Moot Bible and competition timetables, and keep up to date with our events.

Mooting is an advocacy competition which enables you to develop your communication, teamwork, and legal research skills. You can do this by participating in our three internal competitions: the First-Year Mooting Competition, the Internal Mooting Competition, and the Commercial Mooting Competition. While developing your core competencies, mooting is also highly regarded by employers, making it an excellent addition to any application.

Testimonials:

If, like me, you had never even heard the word “mooting” before you came to university - have no fear! As a recent First Class Warwick Law Graduate and future trainee solicitor, I promise that mooting is the very best extra curricular activity you can (and should) get involved in.

Mooting is an unparalleled way to develop the essential research skills, advocacy and intellectual curiosity needed to excel in your degree and beyond. Step out of your comfort zone, stand out from the crowd and show us what you can do!
— Demi Joannides - Former Mistress of the Moots (2017/18)
Mooting was one of the highlights of our first years. We decided to try mooting as apprehensive Freshers and, if we’re honest, we didn’t really know what to do at the start! Our main message would be to persevere, even if you are finding it stressful, and be sure to ask for help if it’s getting too much.

Everyone on the subcommittee is there to assist you and make the mooting experience a positive one. We can definitely say that you won’t regret trying mooting, as not only does it teach you skills that you otherwise wouldn’t learn in your degree, it’s so much fun!
— Bekki Dunn and Raveena Rao - First Year Competition and HSF Commercial Competition Winners (2017/18)
