Moot Judges' Chambers
The moot judge should be a qualified legal practitioner or law lecturer with some prior knowledge and experience of mooting. However, the judge should not be a member (past or present) of either participating team's institution.
Where possible the moot Judge should have some experience in the legal subject to be discussed in the moot, but this is not essential.
The opposing team must be informed of the choice of moot judge at least 10 working days before the moot and they must consent to the proposal of the moot Judge before he or she can be appointed. Any objections must be stated prior to the moot taking place.
The role of the moot Judge is to decide on the winning team (they are not necessarily the team who win the case). At the end of the moot, we ask that the Judge decides both who has won the legal case and who has won the moot.
In all rounds the moot Judge’s decision is final.
