Hello, and on behalf of the Mooting Society, welcome to Aberdeen!
The Mooting Society is one of the original law societies at the University of Aberdeen. When you join as a member you will take advantage of both the opportunity to advance advocacy skills as well as numerous social events with students from all years and disciplines. Our society allows you to explore all aspects of law, such as criminal law, family law, human rights law and international law. We will work throughout the year in a social environment to give you all the skills you need. To test your new skills we organise competitions both in Scotland, England and Internationally, in which you can test your skills.
To make sure you get the full university experience, there are regular meetups for smaller events and socials to full society nights out. Everybody from any year is invited to join us. Some highlights of the year include:
- Call to the bar social (Fancy dress social)
- Regular pub quiz
- Introduction to advocacy session from the Faculty of Advocates, Scotland
- Group trip to the Faculty of Advocates, Edinburgh
- Criminal court visit (Aberdeen), Commercial court visit (Edinburgh)
- Staff v Student moot
See all our social media for updates on introductory events and how to get involved.
