Moot Training now booking!
We are pleased to offer training in Mooting at venues across the UK. Entering the UKELA moots is a great opportunity for those interested in developing their advocacy skills. You don’t have to be an environmental law expert to enter, but you do need to be an enthusiast for mooting.
In order to help you prepare for entering this, or any other mooting competition, UKELA is offering the following moot training:
- 11 January: Birmingham 5-6pm at No5 Chambers, Fountain Court, Steelhouse Lane, Birmingham, B4 6DR
- 18 January: Bristol 5-6pm at No5 Chambers, 38 Queen Square, Bristol, BS1 4QS
- 19 January: London 5-6pm at No5 Chambers, Greenwood House, 4-7 Salisbury Court, London, EC4Y 8AA
We also hope to offer training in Edinburgh - more details will be posted here when confirmed.
There is no obligation to enter if you attend the training (or to attend the training if you want to enter the competitions). Training is free but you must register to attend. Places are limited and will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis and priority will be given to UKELA members.
Book by contacting email@example.com quoting your name, year and place of study and UKELA membership number. We look forward to welcoming you along.
