The OUP & ICCA National Mooting Competition

One of the most prestigious and popular mooting competitions in the UK, the OUP & ICCA National Mooting Competition offers undergraduate law and GDL students the opportunity to practise and perfect their advocacy skills.

This is the go-to website for all those participating in the OUP & ICCA National Mooting Competition, for those interested in getting involved, and for those who want to discover what mooting is.

Round 1 is now underway

OUP and our partners at ICCA are pleased to announce that the 2021/22 competition is now underway. We’re kicking things off virtually with a brand-new moot problem written by our writer for this year Tim Goodwin, and welcoming our new teams and returning institutions to the competition.  Instructions and details of the competition have now been sent by email to the teams, and the moots will take place until Round 1 closes on 1st December.

We’d like to thank the ICCA for partnering with us. 

If you have any questions or enquiries, please email mooting.uk@oup.com.
