Mooting team reaches last 16 of prestigious national mooting competition


Elizabeth Adams and  Melanie Dartnall-Smith, Undergraduate LLB Law students in the School of Law, University of Gloucestershire, are through to the third round of the ESU-Essex Court Chambers National Mooting Competition.

This competition has been running since 1972 and is the longest running national mooting competition .  This year sees 60 university teams from around the country competing and the University Of Gloucestershire team have now reached the final 16 stage of the competition.

Mooting gives students studying law the opportunity to simulate aspects of a case on appeal to the Court of Appeal, or the Supreme Court.  Students need to analyse the problem, research the relevant law, prepare a skeleton argument and then present their oral arguments before a judge (often a real one!).
