Mooting in its earliest form dates from about 1845 when moots were organized by the Inns of Court. Today, the popularity of mooting among students has spread to such an extent that mooting competitions are run in virtually every university law faculty in the country.

At the same time, both practitioners and academics have come to see mooting as an important way of encouraging both good legal research practices and better oral presentation of arguments, to the extent that many faculties have now integrated mooting into the formal curriculum.

This book includes only a large number of moots (drawn from a variety of subject areas) for use in competition, and also provides full guidance on how to stage a moot, including suggestions for research strategies and methods of oral presentation to the moot court. A worked example is provided, complete with the texts of speeches made by first year students at Birmingham University and annotations by the editors. A section on how to judge a moot is also included.
