Answers to regularly asked questions

There is no registration fee to enter the OUP and BPP National Mooting Competition. The competition is open to undergraduate law and GDL students only. Although we can accept one team per academic institution, the members of the team may vary from round to round up until the semi-final and final stages. The competition will run on a knock-out basis until the final round in London, next summer, when four teams (8 students) will have the opportunity to compete for the title of OUP and BPP National Mooting Champions for 2014-2015. Approximately 8 weeks are given per round for teams to arrange and undertake the moot. The moot problem is supplied by OUP, along with other instructions for each round, so a moot problem is not required from participating teams as a condition of registration.
