Herbert Smith Freehills Open Moot
Recommended for second-year students and above.
In the Open Moot, students compete as counsel in an appellate matter in a superior court. Students prepare written submissions over a week and then make their oral argument before judges. The judges will question students on the law and fact surrounding a particular point of appeal.
In the Open Moot, teams are made up of two people (senior and junior counsel) and the teams are judged on their collective performance. Teamwork is key!
The competition is a fantastic stepping stone to other moots, such as the Administrative Appeals Tribunal National Mooting Competition and the Philip C. Jessup International Law Moot Court Competition.
Proudly sponsored by Herbert Smith Freehills.
