Mooting and advocacy – MLL460 and MLJ760

Build a skillset to impress in the courtroom.

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.

Unit enrolment

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:

  • Undergraduate – MLL460 Mooting and Advocacy
  • Postgraduate – MLJ760 Mooting and Advocacy

Please visit the Handbook for further information on prerequisites and recommended units for each moot.
