Advocacy and Mooting Society

The primary objectives of the HKU Advocacy and Mooting Society are developing advocacy skills and promoting mooting activities among the law students at the University. Established in 2002, it is a body of the students at the HKU Faculty of Law.

The activities of the Society include the following: training/workshops on advocacy and mooting; lecture series delivered by local and international advocacy experts; language training programmes, with particular focus on legal language; establishing a collection of printed, audio-visual, on-line and other resources for easy access by its members (including a web site); training sessions for HKU moot teams participating in international mooting competitions; programmes enhancing legal research skills for its members; and collaborating with the Faculty in raising funds for advocacy and mooting activities.

In 2004, the Society established the Basic Law Moot for both junior and senior law students. It is currently a competition between HKU and City University but aims to involve schools from Macau and the Mainland.
