Moots are mock courtroom hearings, wherein students represent claimants and defendants (respectively, the people bringing the court claim and those defending themselves against it).
Mooting requires students to learn about law in a practical and relevant setting - whether in contract law, criminal law, company law or indeed any other specialism. Students learn how to prepare effective cases and court bundles for these hearings, through masterclasses and advice from fellow students.
Through mooting, students hone their debating and litigation skill. Students also develop their legal research skills but more importantly learn how to use their research in the most effective manner making it incredibly useful in their future legal careers.
The Brunel Law Society organises internal and external moots for all its members.
