The Bachelor of Laws degree at Deakin University has been designed to integrate the study of legal theory with the elements of legal practice. The curriculum combines theoretical and practical training, and provides opportunities for students to take part in a number of practical legal skill exercises during the Bachelor of laws degree. MLL010 Moot is the first of four compulsory dispute resolution tasks along with MLL020 Mediation, MLL030 Arbitration and MLL040 Witness Examination.
A ‘moot’ is the argument of a case before a simulated Court (called “a moot court”) by a student or students appearing for a plaintiff against a student or students appearing for the defendant. In MLL010 Moot, a team of 2 students represent the plaintiff and a team of 2 students represent the defendant. Students appear in a hypothetical court case in the Magistrates’ Court of Melbourne, Geelong and Warrnambool.
Oral performance in ‘Practical Legal Skills Week’ 100%. Assessment occurs in the Magistrates’ Court of Melbourne or Geelong.
