Congratulations to Katie De Andrade for being one half of the winning team at the 2023 Institute of Law Mooting Competition.
What is mooting? Mooting is a fun but daunting experience for most legal students. They have to argue a legal issue in front of a judge and opposing counsel who argue the opposite point of view. It is excellent practice for being in court and really hones a student's understanding of their client's case.
Katie was in a team with Archer De Gruchy. They had to go through three challenging stages of the competition, the play-off, the semi-finals and the finals. The judges were the Dean of the Institute of Law, CEO Miceal Barden, Advocate Claire Davies and Dr Jonathan Brown.
