Mooting at the Supreme Court is good for the CV!

Brunel law students recently had the opportunity to take part in a mooting competition held at the Supreme Court. Not only was this a fantastic experience, boosting students’ public speaking skills and confidence but it also gives them something really interesting to talk about on CVs and applications.

Mooting is great for demonstrating that you have the ability to work in a team, conduct research and shows your public speaking skills, all of which are of value to legal employers.
