Product Description

As Canadian law schools continue to expand their mooting programs and increase the emphasis on moot participation, The Essential Guide to Mooting: A Handbook for Law Students will undoubtedly be of great value to their students.

Mooting is an important step in the development of one’s advocacy and communication skills. This thorough “how-to” guide provides students with a road-map to crafting a successful career as a mooter and future advocate in many different arenas. Using this book as a guide, students will be better prepared to step into their “courtrooms” and present credible and persuasive arguments in a manner corresponding to the finest of advocacy skills. The result will be that the calibre of mooting will only improve and continue to reflect the high quality of those behind the arguments: Canada’s law students.

“After reading this book and using it as a guide, students will be better prepared to step into their “courtrooms” and present credible and persuasive arguments in a manner corresponding to the finest of advocacy skills.
