A moot is an extra-curricular activity (at some universities) simulating real-life court experiences. In a moot/mock trial, participants are given the opprtunity to become lawyers and represent fictional clients in a fictional dispute. Though fictional, these activities provide invaluable training opportunites to the participants.
Depending on the competition/program, a moot emulates motion proceedings, whereas a mock trial emulates action or, at times, criminal proceedings. Also, the procedures followed in each activity differ.
The inability of the LLB degree to provide sufficiently skilled graduates is an issue that has taken centre stage for the past 6 years. Moot Court and Mock Trials provides the most comprehensive form of legal education – a far more effective method for developing law students' critical legal skills.
Moots and Mock Trials provide you with a platform to develop skills such as the ability to analyse, investigate and solve problems; proficiency in reading, writing and speaking in English; the ability to read and interpret statutes and legal documents; and the ability to construct and communicate an argument.
