Mooting information session 2019

Event date

Oxford week
Gulbenkian Lecture Theatre

The Oxford Mooting Programme is hosting a Mooting Information Session on Friday November 1st (Week 3), 5:00 pm at the Gulbenkian Lecture Theatre, St Cross Building. The Information Session is organised annually by the Law Faculty in the context of the undergraduate Maitland Chambers Intercollegiate (Cuppers) Mooting Competition but it also discusses more generally all the steps in the mooting process (research, written submissions, oral arguments and public speaking, interacting with the judges, time management and study advice). We will give tips for new and experienced mooters as well as an overview of mooting opportunities in Oxford for both undergraduate and postgraduate students. Please note that the information session is open to all Oxford students (including visiting students and non-law students) and that the session will provide details on eligibility to participate in the different internal and external mooting competitions.

The workshop will be particularly helpful for

  • prospective mooters in any mooting competitions
  • people interested in participating at the Cuppers and college contact persons (we will go through the rules of the competition, application process and organisation of the moots step by step)
  • students (undergraduates and postgraduates, law and non-law) who want to know more about what mooting is and why to do it
  • postgraduate students who are interested to act as judges in Oxford's internal mooting championships and practice rounds. Please note that after the workshop, we are organising a drinks reception for 'moot alumni' - Oxford postgraduate students with prior mooting experience in Oxford or aborad. For more information on this please see this link.

We would be grateful if you could fill in this form with your name and e-mail to indicate your interest to attend the workshop so that we arrange copies of the handouts and refreshments. 

Please note that attending the workshop is not a requirement for your participation at the Cuppers but it is highly encouraged.
