About mooting at UC
The UC School of Law & Justice students have a wide range of opportunities to apply the knowledge they receive not only in classes using practice-oriented teaching, but also by participating to mooting competitions.
In addition to the mooting activities organized by the ISAACS Law Society, students can also enrol to a 3 cdp Mooting law elective (units 8685 & 8686PG). The unit, convened by Dr Dalma Demeter, currently prepares a small team to represent the university at the Willem C. Vis (East) International Commercial Arbitration Moot Court Competition in Hong Kong - the world's most prestigious international trade law competition. (Subject to interest and funding, the unit may target other high-profile international competitions as well.)
Participating to the Vis Moot is an excellent opportunity for law students to test their theoretical education in practice in a prestigious context, involving the greatest names of the profession. The moot involves a hypothetical but thoroughly practical dispute in international trade between private parties from two imaginary countries, to be solved by arbitration. Preparations last for six months and require a high level of commitment, but the challenge ensures a unique experience, boosting the participants' academic and professional skills and a personal growth that no other law subject can provide.
The unit is not available for self-enrolment and pre-requisits apply. Conditions of participation are detailed in the unit outline (accessible with UC login) and are also available from the unit convenor.
