Understanding Moots-

A moot court is an extracurricular activity at many law schools in which participants take part in simulated court proceedings, which usually involves drafting briefs (or memorials) and participating in oral argument. The term derives from Anglo-Saxon times, when a moot (gmot or emot) was a gathering of prominent men in a locality to discuss matters of local importance. The modern activity differs from a mock trial, as moot court usually refers to a simulated appellate court orarbitral case, while a mock trial usually refers to a simulated jury trial or bench trial. Moot court does not involve actual testimony by witnesses, cross-examination, or the presentation of evidence, but is focused solely on the application of the law to a common set of evidentiary assumptions to which the competitors must be introduced. In most countries, the phrase "a moot court" may be shortened to simply "a moot" and the activity may be called "mooting".

Moot court and law review are the two key extracurricular activities in many law schools. Students typically spend a semester researching and writing the memorials, and another semester practicing their oral arguments. Whereas domestic moot court competitions tend to focus on municipal law, regional and international moot competitions tend to focus on subjects such as public international law, international human rights law, international humanitarian law, international criminal law, international trade law, international maritime law, international commercial arbitration, and foreign direct investment arbitration. Procedural issues pertaining to jurisdiction and choice of law are also occasionally engaged, especially in the arbitration moots.

In most moot competitions, each side is represented by two speakers, though the entire team composition is usually larger. Each speaker speaks for around 20 minutes, covering two to three issues. After the main submissions are completed, there will usually be a short round of rebuttal and surebuttal. In larger competitions, teams have to speak in up to ten rounds. The knockout stages are usually preceded by a number of preliminary rounds to determine seeding. Teams almost always have to switch sides throughout the course of the competition.

Moot court is also a part of a lawyer's preparation for an oral argument, usually before a court of appeals. For a typical moot court, the lawyer who is scheduled to present argument invites two or three colleagues to read the briefs of both parties and prepare questions about areas they find problematic. The lawyer scheduled to present argument practices his or her argument before the other lawyers, who are playing the role of judges. Good moot court judges can anticipate the questions the court of appeals is likely to ask, so that the lawyer presenting argument is ready with responses that are intelligent, factually and legally accurate, and difficult for opposing counsel to attack. Moot court judges can also suggest approaches to the case that the court of appeals is likely to favour, giving the lawyer presenting oral argument guidance as to points that need to be emphasised.
