Competitions skills and training workshops
So what a Moot? A Moot is essentially mock proceeding. Each side presents the legal arguments of a case in front of a “judge” and this is set in a forum, for example the Supreme Court of Victoria or the High Court. The competition is setup to replicate the proceedings of a court.
How about a Client Interview? Want to try your hand at negotiations?
The LSS is offering a series of competitions skills and training workshops each semester in a casual atmosphere. You will have the chance to really hone those advocacy and quick thinking skills! Please check out the Skills page on the website for more details. The best idea if you are interested is to come along to the first one without any preparation and watch and learn what goes on.
