Reviews

Review from previous edition This is a splendid book in every way . . . Every law school in the English-speaking world should have at least two copies or, preferably, since there are usually four mooters to a moot, four copies. They will quickly become well thumbed. - Lord Slynn of Hadley

Whether read from cover to cover or used as a work of reference, this book will be indispensable for those coming new to mooting. It also contains much information and ideas from which more experienced mooters will benefit - The Law Teacher

Full of practical guidance and pointers towards all aspects of successful mooting ... of value to both the inexperienced mooter and the experienced mooter or moot organiser - Graham Wright, Senior Lecturer in Law, Birmingham City University

A really great book which has detailed and comprehensive content, covering all the relevant points - Chris Ashford, Senior Lecturer in Law, University of Sunderland
