UTS Law supports an extensive mooting competition program both nationally and internationally as an opportunity for students to gain an international perspective on their courses and careers. Mooting is an exciting way to gain high level courtroom skills and research experience, and is fully funded by the Faculty (including airfares, accommodation and competition expenses).
Mooting is a mock-court experience where students argue questions of law. Coveted by top law students and future employers scoping talent, mooting augments your ability to persuasively argue a case in court and become intimately familiar with relevant law through research.
UTS Law offers an award-winning mooting program. As a new law student, you will be encouraged to sharpen your mooting technique through junior level competitions run by the UTS Law Students’ Society. As your talents develop, you will have the opportunity to apply for a range of competitive-entry, merit-based national and international inter-varsity moots coached by experienced UTS Law academics. This includes the much sought-after Philip C. Jessup International Law Moot and the Monroe E. Price International Media Law Moot held at the University of Oxford, where UTS was the first Australian university to compete in the International Rounds in 2012, made the finals, and lost by one point to a team from NALSAR University of Hyderabad in India.
UTS Law celebrates the achievements of our mooting teams at our annual Awards Ceremony. Mooting may also be counted as a credit towards your degree.
