Mooting enables students to develop important skills. A successful mooter will not only have learnt how to be an accomplished advocate, but will also be able to use legal authorities in a creative manner to the benefit of a client. Students who have actively participated in mooting competitions also often find that they are better equipped to recognise the strengths and weaknesses of possible legal claims. Employers also like to see evidence of participation in extracurricular activities, such as mooting, on an applicant’s curriculum vitae, with regards to work experience, mini-pupillages and future employment. Mooting is therefore a useful activity, irrespective of whether you intend to work as a solicitor, barrister, or outside the legal profession altogether.
