In part one, this book breaks down the essential components of rhetoric, focusing on substantive arguments. Each chapter builds on the next by offering a principle, discussing the generic logic behind the principle, applying it to the legal/mooting setting and then finishes with a case analysis. Part two compiles qualitative research from over 30 competitive mooting students from the faculty of law at the University of Windsor to share their insights on mooting culture and how they have learnt and grown from their experiences. It covers topics including confirmation bias and developing a mooting identity.
Eric Baskind provides a seamless and comprehensive examination of the various areas involved in mooting and advocacy, combining both theoretical and practical aspects as well as the organisation of and participation in mooting competitions.
This text provides clear and compelling advice on every aspect of mooting including the way in which moots are assessed, what the judges are looking for, how to structure a legal argument, and how to prepare a skeleton argument and bundles.
