Mooting with Victoria University law students

From The Weekend, 11:06 am on 19 January 2020
  • Listen duration 8:21

Law students can learn the theory behind constructing and delivering compelling arguments in court but ultimately they have to be tested in person.

Moots are where they start.

Faculty of Law students at the Te Herenga Waka-Victoria University of Wellington are preparing to compete in an international moot  in Vienna where  teams are set a realistic problem that may arise in international sale of goods and international commercial arbitration.

With the help of their coach Eve Bain, this year's team from Victoria are Jonathan Sylvester and Cate Hensen.
