Read below for details of our competitions taking place this year.

This year, we will be running 4 competitions throughout the year. Our competitions are designed to be fun and are open to those of all levels of ability and experience. Whether you are an experienced mooter or you have never done any advocacy before, our competitions are ideal. 

We understand how busy you are. You don’t have time to be conducting drafting or research in preparation for an advocacy or mooting competition. Therefore, to limit the preparation required from you, we ensure that all materials required for the competitions are included in the bundles. For mooting competitions, this includes pre-drafted skeleton argument and all case law / legislation that can be cited. For advocacy competitions, we include any materials that are required. This means that you do not need to do any research or drafting – simply read the bundles and prepare your submissions. You are tested solely on your oral advocacy and all competitors on a level playing field.  

The details of our competitions are set out below. During the course of the year, sign up for the competitions will open one by one. When sign up is live for a competition, there will be a link below. If you would like to be notified when we launch sign up for a competition, join our mailing list by visiting our contact page.
