The University of Chester School of Law has been successful in its application to have the final of this years’ Mooting Competition judged by a Justice of the Supreme Court.

The competition, which begins in January and ends in May, aims to inspire and prepare the next generation of legal professionals.

Mooting involves students undertaking legal research and presenting oral arguments in simulated court proceedings.

Dr John Morrow of Chester Law School knows firsthand the value of mooting in developing legal skills. He said: “Mooting is a fantastic opportunity for students to develop and apply their legal skills whilst obtaining a practical insight into the work of advocacy.

“Over the past few years, we have worked closely with our colleagues at Chester Crown Court to provide our students with the best experience of life in a court room and this has helped to build student confidence. I am delighted that we have been chosen by the Supreme Court to have our final judged and I know that the students are already looking forward to visiting the highest court in the land.”

The Mooting Competition take place across the whole academic year with students from all year groups competing for a spot in the final held at the UK Supreme Court.
