Beyond mooting: Designing an advocacy, ethics and values matrix for the Law School curriculum

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleResearchpeer-review

Abstract

The article discusses the necessity of having moots as a common feature of the law school curriculum to impart advocacy, ethics and values matrices amongst law students in Australia and other countries. It defines moots as a specific form of simulation which enables students to practice and develop a range of skills that are not developed in isolation, but by performing them rather than just learning about them, such as problem-solving, legal analysis and reasoning. Moots can also teach students values, ethics and professional responsibility through some of the basic rules of professional conduct, such as not to mislead and deceive the court.
