    Locations

    The main Macquarie University campus is located at North Ryde. Rounds will take place in either the Moot Court, the Blackshield Room or a designated classroom. Specific room numbers will be allocated on the draw.

    Senior Mooting

    This is the most prestigious and testing competition available to Macquarie Law students. Similar to Junior Mooting, students are required to prepare written submissions and present oral submissions on appellate matters. The competitors are in their penultimate or final year of study and can be expected to display a high standard of skills and understanding. As such, we encourage you to comprehensively test students through the questions that you ask. Rounds run for approximately 90 minutes. Areas of law typically include Contracts, Remedies, Equity, Torts and Constitutional Law.

    Round 1 - Senior Mooting

    We will only ask you to judge once per round.

    Junior Mooting

    This competition is targeted at developing the skills of younger students and is restricted to students in their 2nd or 3rd year of study. Students are required to prepare written submissions and present oral submissions on appellate matters. As these students are younger and typically are less experienced, we anticipate that they will undergo a steep learning curve. We encourage you to test their knowledge of the law and understanding of the legal process. Rounds run for approximately 90 minutes. Areas of law typically include Criminal, Contracts and Torts Law.

    Round 1 - Junior Mooting

    We will only ask you to judge once per round.
