A moot is a competition in which two teams are provided with a factual scenario from which they must research and present legal arguments in favour of their client. Typically, teams involve two students, acting as junior or senior counsel, with an option to include one additional student as instructing solicitor.
The competition requires competitors to submit written submissions that concisely outline the arguments that they wish to raise, before presenting these arguments orally before either a single judge, or a bench of judges.

Intervarsity moots are held locally, nationally or internationally and are directed at our most experienced mooters. For more information, check out the intervarsity competitions below and in our calendar.
Open mooting runs over four/five weeks in the Autumn session. This competition is open to all financial members of the UTS LSS. Problem questions are more challenging than those in the junior competition.
Subject moots run over a single weekend. They are open to all financial members of the UTS LSS, however each year the Subject Mooting Director may restrict one or two moots to “junior” competitors only (first- and second-year students who have never participated in a moot).
These competitions run over four/five weeks in the Spring session. This competition is open to first- and second-year students who are financial members of the UTS LSS and have never participated in a moot before. Problem questions are set at first- and second-year standards.
