Griffith Law School and the Griffith Law Students Association are excited to announce the 2019 High School Mooting Competition.
Suitable for current Year 11 and Year 12 High School students who are considering a career in law. Students will gain firsthand experience in a mock trial competition involving a criminal law problem, and engage with current law students and academic staff.
Teams will consist of two individuals, acting as junior and senior counsel, accompanied by an optional third to aid with research. Teams will argue opposing sides of a factual scenario using a range of legal principles.
To prepare for this competition, students will be given the facts of a case and are required to draft a written submission using the provided template. Students will present their submission in front of a judge who will ask questions and seek clarifications based on the presented argument.
The competition will also provide students with insights into the Bachelor of Laws at Griffith University and experience student life on-campus.
Studies in Legal Studies and English will be advantageous, but not essential.
Mooting at Griffith Law School
Mooting is well-regarded in the legal community and a desired skill by industry employers.
Griffith Law School is committed to giving our current law students opportunities to participate in both national and international competitions. In the recent international vis moot competition in Vienna, our team ranked 16 of 372 competing teams. Our Dean, Associate Professor Therese Wilson has coached our Vis Moot team since 2004 and is keen to share her passion and enthusiasm for mooting with the next generation of law students.
