Mooting and advocacy – MLL460 and MLJ760
Mooting is the closest experience to working in a courtroom that you can have at law school.
Through mooting you develop skills in advocacy, problem solving, legal research, persuasion, collaboration and presentation, while deep-diving into a particular area of law. You will also build a valuable network of practitioners and other students.
To support you, Deakin Law School runs a mooting program that provides coaching, mentoring and financial support to help you maximise this opportunity. Registration fees will be covered, and should the competition be held face-to-face, you will also receive funding towards flights and accommodation.
Students who are selected to take part in moots will be enrolled by the WIL team in either of the following 1 credit point units:
Please visit the Handbook for further information on prerequisites and recommended units for each moot.
