Introduction

Mooting is an oral representation of a legal problem against a fellow counsel before a judge. It is an integral part of becoming a lawyer. For a law student, mooting is critical as it gives the student first-hand court experience and court etiquettes. The idea behind moot is to provide first-hand exposure to a student while he’s still in college. It also helps you build your public speaking skills and also enhance your research skills. It gives you the right mindset to understand details of a court proceeding, and how different aspects of a court proceeding function.

Do you want to be a champion mooter?

It takes preparation, hard work, determination. However, more than anything, it takes guidance and resources to do well in mooting.

You need to work hard and in the right direction. It makes a huge difference if you have someone along the way to point you in the right direction.

Mooting is incredibly competitive, and you have no opportunity to make mistakes and learn. If you make mistakes, it is costly, you lose competitions or don’t make it to the next round.

Given this situation, what is critical is that you prepare to your best ability when you appear in a moot court or even submit the memo to shortlisting.

How do you prepare?

Conclusion

In no ways, does the above list undermine any competition or promote any competition in any manner. Such moot competitions are critical and important to the overall growth of a law student. This is as much a part of main curricular as it is an extracurricular activity. A law student should try to participate in as many such competitions as possible, and the college/university should also encourage such competitions and student’s participation in such competition.
