Purpose-designed moot room for Greenwich


Greenwich’s LLB student mooters can now hone their mooting skills in a new facility at the Greenwich Campus

Moot room

Greenwich’s LLB student mooters are now able to benefit from a purpose-designed mooting space at the Greenwich Campus. Completed in the Autumn of 2021, the facility in the University’s Queen Anne Building is designed to replicate a courtroom and also includes full sound and cameras.

Moots are mock trials, without witnesses, which involve two opposing parties arguing a point of law in front of a ‘moot judge’.

Formally opened in November, the room will allow student mooters to develop their public speaking and advocacy skills in a realistic courtroom setting.

Talking about this exciting new facility for the School’s LLB students, Justin Brunskell, Senior Lecturer in Law and the School’s ‘Moot Master’, comments ‘mooting is a great way to practise legal arguments and research. The ability to convey complex argument in an intelligible, structured way is a key skill in a lawyer, and being able to practise in this new moot room will be of enormous benefit to the School’s students’.
