The undergraduate mooting program is devoted to the practice of oral legal advocacy through moot competitions. The Moot Board at UofT is responsible for selecting a team of mooters at the beginning of each academic year, who then compete on behalf of UofT at national moot competitions. Students are prepared for competitions through workshops, seminars, and practice sessions, where mooters can receive direct feedback on their arguments and style. The UofT Moot Team is proud to have won many awards at competitions nation-wide. More information on UofT’s rankings at national competitions can be found at Competition Information.
The Moot Team
In September 2019, the Mooting Board will be releasing information regarding Moot Team try-outs for the 2019-2020 academic term. Applicants will be asked to prepare and present brief submissions, mimicking a formal moot competition. Select applicants will then form the Moot Team for 2019-2020 and go on to compete at competitions across Canada.
The Mooting Board at UofT hosts their own annual moot competition in February in association with the University of Toronto Faculty of Law. 2020 will mark UofT Cup’s fourth year running. Visit Competition Information or our website below for more information. You can also watch the 2018 Final here.
