Student(s) will prepare materials for training and engage with other students in preparation for participation in external Moot Court competitions on behalf of Ulster University.
This will involve instructing students about all the relevant elements of Mooting including the preparation of skeleton arguments, hearing bundles/booklets, proper forms of etiquette in Moot Courts, constructing persuasive arguments, honing arguments and persuading 'Judges'. It may also involve presiding over mock Moot Courts to ensure other students have the best opportunity to prepare for external competition.
Participants will have acquired the skills of preparing material for delivery to peers; assessing the work of peers in a helpful manner in an extra-curricular environment. Participants will also develop organisational skills and develop their own capacity to learn as a result of 'being on the other side' of the learning/teaching divide.
Ciaran White, as Director of Mooting, will assess the materials prepared and the delivery of them as part of this activity.
