The Benefits of Judging Moots

Tuesday, 1 March 2022

University mooting competitions often seek barristers to volunteer as moot judges.  Moot judging is a valuable way to support budding advocates and to foster connections between emerging lawyers and the Bar, and also provides an opportunity for barrister judges to obtain CPD units.  This CPD will provide an overview of the moot competitions that the NSW Bar assists with and what is involved in judging a moot.  A panel of mooters, former mooters and experienced moot judges will provide practical tips for judging moots and supporting mooters’ advocacy skills.
