My name is Genti Gashi and I am this year's internal mooting officer for Brunel Law school. Mooting is a great activity to be a part of as it will develop your character, confidence, and will help you in presenting and understand legal concepts in greater depth. Doing mooting alongside your studies is also very beneficial as it is your chance to bring the legal cases and theories to life in a moot court. I strongly advise you to join mooting!
As the debating officer this year, I am planning on creating a competitive yet comfortable environment for students wishing to improve their debating skills.

Debating is an essential skill for lawyers and I will do everything in my power to successfully guide those wishing to improve this coming year.
