Mooting, Negotiation and Other Skills

The Law School runs a mooting (advocacy) programme where students argue cases in simulated courtroom surroundings before local barristers and judges.

A moot is an imaginary court case in which participants present oral arguments in relation to a specific area of the law in a formal setting before a judge. The parties to the hypothetical case are each represented by two students who carefully present legal issues in a way that is most advantageous to their argument.

You will 'moot' at least once in your first year, but you can also go on to participate in national and international competitions and events. The two student law societies also run a variety of mooting workshops.

The competition provides an opportunity to develop many of the skills needed to pass law exams. Southampton students have recently enjoyed extraordinary success in this.
