In a moot, a legal problem is set as an appeal case before a court. Students take on the roles of counsel for the appellant and the respondent and must present a legal argument that will persuade the judge that their interpretation of the law is the right one. A judgement is then passed down. The winners of a moot are not necessarily the counsel who win the judgement – but the counsel who best present their legal argument.
This list shows relevant books and ebooks in the library, which may help you when preparing for a moot.
The library also provides guidance on using Westlaw or LexisLibrary, if you need help finding cases for a moot.
You can find other relevant books and e-books by using LibrarySearch.
Remember, books on the topics of studying law, legal skills and advocacy can also include chapters on mooting successfully.
