Practice your advocacy skills with mooting

There are many activities available to our students at the School of Law that complement the curriculum.

Pro Bono

The School of Law and the Student Law Society work collaboratively on many Pro Bono Projects. Students are currently working on the following projects:


There is a great variety of projects you can get involved with at the University.


A moot is a mock legal hearing where students play the role of counsel and deliver oral arguments on one or more points of law in front of a judge. Mooting helps you to develop your research and presentation skills. It is good practice if you wish to become a barrister.

The School of Law at Leeds has a long-established mooting tradition and a purpose-built facility in the Moot Court Room.

Student Societies

There are two student societies for students in the School of Law, the Leeds Student Society (LawSoc) and the Criminal Justice Society (CrimSoc). They provide social, sporting, academic and career activities to their respective members.

You do not have to be a member of either society to take part in the pro bono activities run within the School.
