Description

What is a Mooting Competition?

Compete in teams of three against other schools, think on your feet and get feedback from our world ranking mooting team, in a legal debate based on a real court case. The essential issue isn’t the facts- it’s the application of legal principles.

Competing in a moot helps develop skills in legal drafting, public speaking, formulation of legal arguments, professional conduct and legal research.

Monash Law's 2018 High School Mooting Competition is open to final year students, but teams may include exceptional students from Year 11. It is being held on Tuesday 29th May, with the Grand Final in our world-class mooting facility.

Want to see a mooting competition in action? Here is a sample mooting problem, and one-minute and full-length videos of the real moot, in our brand new moot court.

What is a Mock Trial Competition?

In a team of five act as counsel for the prosecution or defense- examine and cross-examine witnesses and make an opening and closing statement in a mock court trial based on a real court case.  Develop key courtroom skills in witness questioning, as well as knowledge of rules of evidence and procedure.

Our 2018 Mock Court Trial Competition is open to Year 10's and 11's, and is on Monday 10th September and Tuesday 11th September.

The Grand Final will be held in Monash Law’s brand new, multi-million dollar moot court. Your can take a virtual reality tour here.

We'll be sending out preparatory materials for the competitions two months in advance to registered schools. We'd love to have you on board. If you're interested, register here for both or either competition- it takes less than 30 seconds.
