Mooting Success in 2017-18

This academic year, The Dickson Poon School of Law celebrated a range of successes in its global mooting activity.


A special report has now been compiled, documenting our students' achievements.

Mooting is a key extra-curricular activity at the School, with students given the opportunity to develop their skills in internal competitions run by the Bar and Mooting Society, while other competitions allow them to compete against students from other universities in London-based and national competitions. This year, the School has represented King's College London in leading international moots such as the Philip C Jessup International Law Moot Court Competition, the Willem C Vis International Commercial Arbitration Moot and the Oxford International Intellectual Property Moot.

This programme, and in particular its international arm, is overseen by the School’s Director of Mooting and the Student Experience Manager. It relies on a large group of volunteers – many of them alumni of the College – who give their time to coaching teams, judging practice moots and providing mentorship to students.

Both the School's Director of Mooting and Student Experience Manager took the opportunity of the report's publication to thank all those involved: "We are enormously grateful for the work of all those involved in mooting, and also thank the School for its generous funding of the moot programme. We are enormously proud of our mooters, not only because they have been very successful in their mooting endeavours, but because they embrace the bigger goals of mooting: to participate with passion, perseverance and a dedication to academic excellence; to understand the camaraderie and patience that is required for team work; and to grasp the professional and personal growth that mooting facilitates."
