UNSW Law Mooting Competition of Australia's First Peoples

UNSW Law is the only university in NSW with a Mooting competition conceived of by, and run for, Indigenous law students. 

The Mooting Competition gives Indigenous law students, at all stages of their degree, the opportunity to compete against each other in a culturally safe environment. Students are able to apply their legal research and oral advocacy skills, as well as their cultural knowledge, to solving legal problems. In addition, the Mooting Competition assists in developing students' confidence to moot in UNSW Law Soc competitions.


The Organiser plans and implements all aspects of the UNSW Law Mooting Competition of Australia's First Peoples in consultation with student Mooters and UNSW Law.
