The 2020/21 OUP & ICCA National Mooting Competition is now underway, with students from across the country showcasing their advocacy skills over a number of rounds of fiercely fought moots. The final will be held virtually in June 2021 due to ongoing COVID restrictions.

Mooting can enhance students’ understanding of the law, as well as their analytical and advocacy skills. Although it can be nerve-wracking, mooting is intellectually rewarding and can be used to demonstrate a keen interest in advocacy on a CV. Experienced criminal barrister, Nathan Rasiah, and the 2017 OUP National Mooting Competition winner, Conor Lockhart, explain the importance of getting involved in mooting.
Baroness Hallett and Conor Lockhart have kindly put together some tips for those of you currently taking part in the competition:
