Mooting is an increasingly important activity in UK law schools. This is because mooting offers students the opportunity to develop advanced analytical, research, drafting and advocacy based skills, which help to improve their general academic achievement and employability profiles. Tangible evidence of these skills is invaluable in a progressively competitive job market. The ideal guide for the first-time mooter, Preparing to Moot provides an accessible, systematic and pragmatic approach which demystifies the process. It focuses on analysis, research and argument construction as the foundations for successful advocacy and provides students with a working guide to use alongside moot problems in five popular topic areas: criminal law, contract law, tort law, human rights and the law of equity. Through careful use of annotated examples generated by real students, and expert tips and advice from the authors, the book shows students how to individually analyse, research and construct arguments for various advocate positions, providing a practical and easy-to-follow overview of how to tackle a moot from analysing a problem initially, right up to beginning to advocate.

"This book provides missing pieces to mooting for students. In part one, it breaks down the essential components of rhetoric, focusing on substantive arguments. Each chapter builds on the next by offering a principle, discussing the generic logic behind the principle, applying it to the legal/mooting setting and then finishes with a case analysis. Part two compiles qualitative research from over 30 competitive mooting students from the faculty of law at the University of Windsor to share their insights on mooting culture and how they have learnt and grown from their experiences. It covers topics including confirmation bias and developing a mooting identity."--

Mastering the Art of International Mooting: The structure, technique and rules of international mooting is a book that can be used by all levels of law students regardless of their background with international mooting. As law schools around the world develop courses that deal with international mooting, a practical technique-based mooting book will greatly add to the resources for this type of course. This book sets out the nature of the mooting exercise; the rationale for the exercise; how to analyse the fact-patterns; how to research and write skeleton arguments; and how to prepare for oral submissions. This book is unique, in that it provides strategies for moot students on how to deal with situations which may arise at international competitions. Examples of possible addresses to the Court are provided in the book, giving students options of what to say and do in specific situations. While this book also speaks about how to prepare for competitions, it also speaks to coaches of mooting teams. Strategies and tips are provided to present and future coaches in respect of selection of moot teams and judging mooting competitions. It is hoped that this book will increase the standard of mooting and eventual advocacy of law students and eventually lawyers.
