Congratulations to our young lawyers of the future… Imogen, Georgia, Isobel, Oceanna and Alex who admirably represented Mountain Creek State High School in the University of the Sunshine Coast Sunshine Coast Schools Mooting Competition in May.
What is mooting?

A moot is a simulated court hearing which imitates procedures followed in real courts. It is an opportunity for students to consider a legal problem, prepare written submissions and then use their oral presentation skills to present arguments before a judge or judges.

Mooting is not the same as public speaking or debating. Mooting involves a conversation with a judge about the case. Competitors need to rely on authorities of law to persuade the judge to find in their favour. Judges will question advocates during their oral submissions so competitors need to be ready for anything!

Mooting allows competitors to:
1.Engage with interesting and topical legal issues;
2.Enhance advocacy and writing skills; and
3.Collaborate with peers.
