Four Institutes Moot 2024

The Four Institutes Moot is using Casedo as its platform for the finals 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.

Put together your bundle

Casedo stores everything in casefiles. It’s a very flexible piece of software that allows you to put together your documents in a way that you see fit. Check out the videos and articles in the menu item What is Casedo? above.

The FIM organisers have also put together a model example that you can download in Step 6.

Step 5

Here's an example for you

FIM has put together an example casefile of how they think your 1st submission might look.

Download it to see how to put together a coherent and dynamic submission casefile.

Step 6

Build your argument

Time now to bring everything you need together into Casedo. Drag and drop in Word and PDF files and organise them in folders and subfolders. You can reorganise them as often as you want before submission. Highlight, bookmark and comment on the relevant sections and build links between documents for simple navigation during the moot itself. Paginate with inserts, add a Table of Contents with a single click.Want to be able to see all your annotations in a single place? Just toggle to view them in the Table of Contents.

We’ve created a step-by-step work through – How to create a moot bundle, do take a look at it. Otherwise check out our Learn Videos and all the articles in our Support section. If you need any assistance with Casedo, just email us at support@casedo.com.

Step 7

Submit your Casefile

Now you’ve built your argument in Casedo and added your skeleton, upload the file here. Make sure that your Casefile is paginated correctly and remember don’t add or remove documents to your copy of the Casefile once it has been submitted, otherwise you risk having a bundle paginated differently from the judge’s copy. If your casefile is annotated for your eyes only, you can save your casefile without annotations and share that. To do that you’ll need to Save a Clean Casefile.
