Review quote

Review from previous edition This is a splendid book in every way ... Every law school in the English-speaking world should have at least two copies or, preferably, since there are usually four mooters to a moot, four copies. They will quickly become well thumbed. Lord Slynn of Hadley Whether read from cover to cover or used as a work of reference, this book will be indispensable for those coming new to mooting. It also contains much information and ideas from which more experienced mooters will benefit The Law Teacher Full of practical guidance and pointers towards all aspects of successful mooting ... of value to both the inexperienced mooter and the experienced mooter or moot organiser Graham Wright, Senior Lecturer in Law, Birmingham City University A really great book which has detailed and comprehensive content, covering all the relevant points Chris Ashford, Senior Lecturer in Law, University of Sunderland
