*A moot is a mock legal hearing where students play the role of counsel and deliver oral arguments on one or more points of law. A 'moot' or 'mooting' is the oral presentation of a legal issue or problem. Mooting offers a systematic training process of the essential skills of problem solving, legal analysis, drafting legal submissions and the development of public speaking. Mooting as an exercise enhances a student’s overall understanding and knowledge of particular areas of law and also enhances overall confidence in public speaking, general research, and presentation skills.
