Excitingly, Rodney Dixon QC, a member of Temple Garden Chambers who practices both internationally and domestically in the fields of international law, public law and human rights, has kindly volunteered his time to run an advocacy/mooting workshop for SOAS law students. Mr Dixon is an accredited advocacy trainer, so we could really not be in better hands!
We urge everyone to make the most of this rare opportunity to take part in this session with an eminent QC. Mooting is an important aspect of legal education and may also be fundamental to your future careers. Furthermore, mooting is compulsory for all first year law students as you will be graded on this as part of your course.
The workshop will take place on Tuesday, 15 November in SWLT (Wolfson Lecture Theatre in Senate House) at 6:45pm. It will last for 1 hour.
The advocacy session will be general and not tailored to specific areas of law. It will therefore be of use no matter your personal areas of interest.
NB - You will not be expected to try your hand at mooting in the workshop as it will be a purely informative session.
Please note that places will be offered on a first come first served basis so don't be late!
