Mooting is one of the extracurricular activities in any law school. We often hear that it is an important part of a law school life. But how exactly is moot important? Let’s find out.
- Students often spend months in researching and preparing their memorials and oral arguments. This gives them a grounded experience in the college life only and makes them job ready. Thus, this particular skill is transferred to their real life and makes them one step ahead of others.
- Also, any employer considers the student with the moot court experience coupled with polished research skills and other activities involving interpersonal skills an ideal candidate.
- It boosts up not only the thinking and creative skills but also increases your knowledge as you spend a quality time on research.
- Students also excel in the particular subject on which the moot problem is based and learn the art of speaking fluently.
- It’s all about teamwork, so with the help of moot court exercise students also master the art of working with diverse people and bringing out a creative outcome.
- Lastly, it helps you find the lacunas in the areas of law in an efficient manner and distinguishing the relevant from the least important ones.
So, in short, it is an excellent way of improving upon your research, analytical, public speaking and not to forget your advocacy skills.
