Why bother with a post grad? Are they even worth it? Have your say! 26-10-2016

    Hello, I have to complete a moot as lead counsel for the respondent and I literally have no idea how to start what to write etc... Could someone give me some advice or points on this please?

    Many thanks!

    There's a good Student Guide to Mooting (Snape and Watt).

    You can pick it up for about £3, no doubt your law library will have a copy. It shows you how to do a skeleton argument, introduce yourself/the parties, and what to expect.

    No point in paying for a coaching service - a moot competition isn't the end of the world, and if you're doing the BPTC/LPC it is a 'soft' skill with merely Competent or Not Yet Competent. The judgement is usually predetermined if it is part of your degree, you are marked on how you adapt to the arguments.

    Don't forget to dress properly.
