University of Newcastle Law Students' Association

Organised by:
Law Students Association

A moot is a simulated court proceeding where student teams are assigned a client who has found themselves in a contemporaneous legal conundrum. As their advocates, it will up to you to convince the appeal judge that the law favours your case. It is perhaps the closest experience that a student can have whilst at university to appearing in court. The world of mooting allows you to banter with judges and verbally negotiate your way around legal issues in a courtroom setting all while dressed in a suit. If nothing else, it is great practice for your future career - whatever that may be.

The 2017 King & Wood Mallesons Senior Championship Moot is open to all current UNLSA members undertaking their THIRD year of law and above as well as SECOND and THIRD year JD students. (Never fear if you are not yet in your third year, as there will be a junior comp running in semester 2!)

Preliminary Rounds commence 3rd & 5th of April (Week 6) and run on Monday and Wednesday evenings at University House, King St Newcastle. So grab a team of THREE people and register at:
