ABOUT THE COMPETITION – 

Check out the Australian Law student Society’s page: https://alsa.asn.au/competitions/championship-moot

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 competition is sponsored by King & Wood Mallesons and the Semi Final will be held in their Melbourne firm. This will provide a chance for mooters to socialize with experienced King & Wood Mallesons lawyers and would be very beneficial for your career to leave a good impression.

The highlight of the competition is the competition final venue, in which is located in the Federal Court. This holds a good opportunity for all mooters to experience the Bar Table and the Bench. This is an experience of a lifetime that is solely exclusive for Deakin aspiring lawyers.
