Mooting Competitions 2023/2024

Durham University Mooting Society is using Casedo as its platform for all Mooting competitions for the current academic year.

Why Casedo for mooting?

Casedo is a simple workspace that brings together all your documents, so you can easily switch between them, highlight vital information, make notes and create links between files, all on one platform. It’s ideal for mooting in two ways.

1. Build your argument by bringing together all the research, law and documents pertinent to the case into a single workspace.

2. As you build your argument you will create a moot-ready bundle, organised in a way that suits you.
