About the Webinar
It is said that understanding the art of mooting is the first step towards a successful career in law. Being a mooter sets you apart from other law students and helps you build on your analytical, research, and communication skills. Mooting also instills confidence and leadership skills in students and is regarded highly by recruiters.
The idea behind the webinar is to help out students from up-and-coming law schools to understand what goes into building a mooting culture i.e. organizing moots, participating in them, inculcating the value of mooting in fellow students, and the challenges faced.
