Mooting is the traditional bloodbath sport of law school and is your chance to get a taste of what it is like to be a real Atticus Finch in the heat of battle! In mooting you will encounter a 'mock' courtroom scenario where two teams compete against each other in the context of a mock submission.
The problem, a hypothetical fact scenario, is usually framed as an appeal against an earlier decision. As such, the facts have already been agreed upon, and the two sides are debating issues of law with one team representing the appellant and the other representing the respondent.
