WHAT IS MOOTING?
Mooting is a legal practice which involves presenting oral arguments on a point of law in mock court proceedings. The aim is to present a legal argument on a hypothetical set of facts, persuasively and succinctly. The moot is judged on quality of advocacy skills, argument and legal research - not by being correct on the law. Mooting is a great way to develop advocacy (and gives insight into careers in litigation and advocacy), improve research skills, and receive constructive feedback from senior students, fellows and barristers.

THE ANNUAL GCLS MOOT
Part of Girton tradition is to hold a competitive moot for law undergraduates in their first year. Generally, mooters find they acquire highly useful information for their academic subjects. The experience is also a valuable addition to an aspiring solicitor or barrister's CV, and, by no means least, is good fun!
