Do

  • Why not have a go at mooting? A moot court simulates a court hearing, in which participants analyse a problem, research the relevant law, prepare written submissions, and present oral argument. You can work with a teacher at school to set up a school mooting competition.

  • To apply to university, you need to demonstrate that you are well informed about the subject and have a strong interest in studying it at greater depth. To get started, practice writing about your subject interests by composing short responses to the following questions:
  1. What have you watched, read or listened to that has inspired you?
  2. Why was it interesting?
  3. What new issues did you learn about?
  4. What do you want to find out next?
  5. What excites you about the subject?
  6. Why do you think studying the subject is important?
