Legal services company Tees Law worked with ARU Law students on a real practice-based scenario that enabled the students to develop their skills in analysing and presenting legal arguments around a contract law case.
The Live Brief concluded with a “mooting”, a realistic simulation of a legal trial to consider the case, conducted with full court protocol and etiquette. Students playing the roles of opposing pairs of legal counsels present legal arguments in front of an acting judge - who decides, based on the presentations, which of the sides wins.
Emily Jones, Solicitor with Tees Law, took the role of acting judge for the mooting.
Hear from Emily and some of the students about their Live Brief experiences:
