A moot is a simulated appeal in a superior court, based on a mock fact scenario and judgment from the lower court. There will be no witnesses involved, just legal argument about the decision from the lower court. Teams are required to submit written submissions for both the appellant and respondents.

This is a good chance to develop your oral presentation skills and persuasive legal arguments. Top mooters are expected to present their arguments and address the key points in clear and logical written submissions. It should be expected that it is presented in a highly persuasive manner.

This year we will be running the junior moot a little differently then usual. There will be two rounds of heats. The first round of heats will consist of an oral submissions and written submissions. Competitors will require to record yourself and upload the recording up on Deakin Air for the judges. The second round of heats will be run like normal; each team will represent each appellant or respondents and present their case in front of the judge.

Please be patient with us and contact Daphne at competitions@dlssgeelong.com.au if you have any question.
