This moot aims to ensure its authenticity and relevance to students’ learning, the moot problem is designed to closely resemble a real-life dispute and the moot judges are mainly practitioners. It is hoped that students who avail themselves of this opportunity will further develop fundamental lawyering skills including problem-solving, legal analysis and reasoning, legal research, factual investigation, communication (oral and written), organisation, management and teamwork. Ultimately, these skills will better equip all law graduates for further study and for their future careers. 

Preference will be given to applicants who have successfully completed Contract Law A and B (LAWS2111/2112).

This team will be mentored by academic staff, practitioners and senior mooting students. Up to four students will be selected.
