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 oral round of a moot court competition is a student’s first experience of presenting his/her/their case before a judge.
From referring to the judges in an appropriate manner all the way to making quality arguments, an oral round can either make or break your case. The idea behind this webinar is to help law students understand the nuances of oral argumentation and court mannerisms to do better in all future moots.
