Mooting
 

One of our rooms that holds our bound journals is known as 'The Mooting Room'. This is one of the Law Library's collaborative study spaces where you are encouraged to work together on legal arguments and projects.

You will need to analyse and research a problem and relevant law, prepare and present your case before a judge. It's a great way to practice the art of legal arguing!

Newcastle Law School holds Mooting competitions, with a final held at Newcastle's Moot hall (pictured right), organised by NUSU Newcastle University Law Society, alongside other competitions like Client Interviewing and Negotiating. The NUSU Newcastle Bar Society also provides opportunities to further your legal career through talks, workshops and networking events.
