Mooting workshops 2022-23
The first of the mooting workshops will take place this year during October with more to follow in February. The workshops will take place in-person in Edinburgh, London and Manchester plus a virtual workshop taking place on zoom for those who prefer to do remote learning.
Please see our calendar for a full schedule of dates.
WhO Should attend?
Mooting helps develop research skills, advocacy skills, confidence and critical thinking. It is an important experience for those students who are considering life at the Bar, but also to those considering life as a solicitor (with solicitors now benefitting from much greater rights of audience in court).
If you wish to enter either internal or external mooting competitions with the OULS, you will need to attend a training session to ensure you know how to use Casedo, our new case bundling software.
The workshops also give OULS members the opportunity to meet other like-minded OU Law students at all stages of their degree in a fun and interactive environment especially as all in person workshops are followed by a social event.
How much is it?
The workshops are free to attend, but those wishing to attend must be members of the OULS.
what will i need to bring?
Participants will need to bring a laptop for 'Have a Go' activities plus lunch and drinks.
what will be provided?
A workbook will be provided to all who have signed up as well as an Official OULS pen!!
how do i sign up?
Sign up closes a week before workshops and a confirmation email will be sent to all those signed up on the Monday prior to the workshop.
