The advocacy trainings we provide are not just essential for mooting, but will serve you in many aspects of your life. This year we are providing twice as many training events as last year as part of a real effort to support novice mooters. We understand that mooting can be intimidating at first, but attending our seminars and Practice Non-Competitive Moots will put you at ease and provide lots of guidance! We urge both novices and experienced mooters to engage in training events. For those who don't moot in Michaelmas Term or simply want more experience, we will be repeating our training events at the start of Lent Term. We are here to support you every step of the way.

INTRODUCTION TO MOOTING SEMINAR (in association with BPP)and drinks reception

The Introduction to Mooting Seminar will provide you with a detailed overview of mooting basics: what is a moot? How do I conduct legal research? How do I structure my skeleton argument? How do I introduce myself to the court and address the judge and other mooters? How do I draft and deliver a mooting speech?

Experienced mooters and the Bar & Chambers committee will lead sessions focusing on four topics: legal research and bundle preparation, moot court etiquette, drafting a skeleton argument and speech delivery. BPP University Law School, who teaches the Bar Professional Training Course (BPTC), will then conclude with a presentation summarising expert tips for mooting. Please join us afterwards for a drinks reception with your fellow students, the Bar & Chambers committee, and BPP. 

Michaelmas Term Date: 1st October 2019

Registration will open on Monday 23rd September and close on Tuesday 1st October at 5pm. Sign up quickly as spots are allocated on a first-come, first-served basis!

Lent Term Date: TBC

Time: TBC

practice non-competitive moots

In an effort to make mooting more supportive than ever, we will be providing PNCs at the start of both Michaelmas and Lent Term. PNC moots are an opportunity to learn the basics of mooting and get to grips with the etiquette and style of oral presentation. We recruit friendly judges and adjust the rules to ensure that you are relaxed and supported throughout your submissions.


Each participant will receive a feedback book in which they can write down the judge’s oral feedback at the end of the moot and use that constructive criticism to develop as a mooter. Not only do PNC moots qualify novice mooters for internals, but they also provide excellent training for intermediate and advanced mooters ahead of competitive internals later in the term.


Thus far, we have two PNC moots scheduled in MT:


PNC Moot 1

  • Date: Tuesday 15th October 2019

  • Recommended experience level: open to all

  • Registration: Google form link will be sent out in due time


PNC Moot 2

  •  Date: Monday 21st October 2019

  • Recommended experience level: open to all

  • Registration: Google form link will be sent out in due time

Stay tuned for news about two new PNCs coming at the start of Lent Term!
