Competitive mooting run-offs

Each year, second- and third-year students are invited to try out for a spot on one of McGill’s moot court teams.


Students cannot do a competitive moot if they are going on exchange in the same year.

Students must be headed into their third or fourth year. Also note that your participation in other non-class credit activities (such as Law Journal, TL, etc) may have bearing on selection (i.e. you may have to make choices!)
