Thanks to No5 Chambers, Lexis Nexis and Lawtext Publishing for the fantastic prizes and to UCL and Kings College for hosting. Prizes include cash, mini-pupillages and a subscription to Environmental Law and Management magazine.
Training and Past Moot Problems
Since 2013 we have provided practical training to people interested in entering our mooting competitions. This was in response to our student members who said that they didn't all receive moot training as part of their studies and some were lacking in confidence. Our thanks to go No5 Chambers whose barristers have provided training in London, Birmingham and Bristol; and to the Faculty of Advocates in Edinburgh.
Below are some past moot problems and sample skeleton arguments which you may find helpful.
