UK Supreme Court moot finals

Does your graduate law school or university law society have a mooting competition?

Would you like to have the opportunity to practise your advocacy in front of a Supreme Court Justice?

Every year the UK Supreme Court offers 12 graduate law schools and university law societies the opportunity to hold the final of their mooting competition at the Supreme Court.

If you are interested in this opportunity, please read through the General Terms and Conditions below before completing the Supreme Court Moot Finals Application Form. You should return the completed form to enquiries@supremecourt.uk. Please note that only applications made using this form will be considered.

The closing date for applications is 5pm on Friday 27 October 2017. Applications received after this date will not be considered.

Following submission of your application, an Education Officer from the Supreme Court may wish to contact you over the telephone to discuss your application in more detail. We will give you advance warning of when we plan to telephone you at a mutually convenient time.

We will let you know whether or not you have been successful by the end of November 2017.

If you have any questions, please email enquiries@supremecourt.uk for further information.

Please note that the Supreme Court Moot Finals are specifically for accredited higher education law programmes and student-run societies. Other organisations including Inns of Court or Chambers (or comparable institutions from other jurisdictions) will need to arrange a corporate hire of the court - please see our Venue hire section for further information.

Venue hire for Moots

Law schools/societies which are not offered one of the 12 free slots, but still wish to hold a moot at the Supreme Court, can hire a courtroom for £250 plus VAT.

They will have to arrange for their own judges and also still adhere to point 7 of the General Terms and Conditions.

Please note that Supreme Court Justices are not available to judge such moot finals, and we ask that institutions refrain from making requests (directly or indirectly) to Justices with this intention.

If you are interested in this option, please contact the Court's Venue hire service.
