About the events

Q&A sessions with panels of practitioners

One of the most popular features of the National Speed Mooting Competition is the Q&A session we organise. We thought that we would bring you some further sessions for you to enjoy from the comfort of your home. If you would like to virtually attend any or all of the sessions, fill in the form below to register. We will send you the link for the Zoom event so that you can join. You can submit questions in advance using the form below. If you think of any questions after you have signed up, you can send these by email to

There will be 2 events, each with a different panel and therefore a different focus. The sessions are as follows:

Wednesday 17th February at 7.30 pm - Solicitor Panel
Wednesday 3rd March at 7.30 pm - Barrister Panel

The names of the panellist can be seen below. The events are open to anyone to attend, whether you are a student, a paralegal or even in practice. Hopefully you will be able to have questions answered in relation to applications, interviews and life in practice. Once you sign up, we will send a confirmation email to confirm that you are registered for the event. When signing up below, you can select as many events as you would like to attend.

The events have been organised by John Dove (Senior Crown Prosecutor).
