Student mooters with acting judge

Uni of Brighton and Uni of Sussex intervarsity mooting final

The intervarsity moot finale took place on Tuesday 7 March at the University of Brighton.

Our mooting competition allows Brighton Law School students to compete against other law students in a mock trial, where two sides argue a point of law in front of an acting judge who decides which side wins.
