University isn’t just about lectures, essays and exams! Our students also get involved in other activities as part of their course.
Run by the students for the students, the Law Society organises a wide range of events for members including:
Take part in a fictitious legal appeal case in our mock court room and get a taste of what its really like to be a lawyer.
In a moot, two pairs of advocates argue a case in front of a judge and whichever team presents the strongest legal argument wins. It is without a doubt, the best way to develop your legal skills of analysis, interpretation, presenting and public speaking.
Mooting competitions can be held internally amongst students or externally where the School goes up against other universities as part of regional and national events.
The School of Law, Social Sciences and Communications has a strong reputation for its mooting success with students' successes including beating Oxford University in the annual Oxford University Press (OUP) National Mooting Competition.
