The UCL Law Society is using Casedo as its platform for both the Senior and Junior 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.

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.

Paginate with inserts, add a Table of Contents with a single click.

Step 7

Submit your Casefile and your Skeleton

Now you’ve built your Casefile, upload it here. Make sure that your Casefile is in its final form and remember don’t add or remove documents to the Casefile once it has been submitted, otherwise you risk having a bundle paginated differently from the judge’s copy.

Before uploading your submission, you need to name the Casefile correctly, see the form opposite for details. If you need more help, take a look at this article.

Step 7

Submit your Casefile and your Skeleton

Now you’ve built your argument in Casedo and completed your skeleton separately, upload both files here.
