'This book offers brilliant new insights on the intellectual, physical and emotional aspects of mooting. In an era of growing emphasis on experiential learning and innovation in legal education, Thomas and Cradduck have given law teachers and students worldwide a valuable new tool to hone their crafts. The intertwining of pedagogical concepts and practical strategies is indispensable for full-time professors, adjunct coaches, peer mentors, and moot directors. The explanation of why and how to prepare for success also makes this book a must-read resource for every student mooting for fun or competition.'

‘The Art of Mooting provides an effective guide to the practical and theoretical aspects of mooting. The book combines the practical know-how that mooters need at each stage of a moot competition with the thorough theoretical and pedagogical approach that coaches require. It is therefore an indispensable resource for both mooters and moot coaches. If mooting is an art, this book puts everyone on the path to becoming an artist.’

‘Happily, it has become fashionable to nod when told what a good thing mooting is for legal students and their instructors. But with their book, Mark Thomas and Lucy Cradduck take a more considered and rigorous approach, examining how and why mooting is so beneficial. Good advocacy synthesises thoughtfulness and experience. So does this book. It will be of interest and value to anyone with a stake in good legal education - and that, surely, is all of us.’
– Stuart Baran, Three New Square, UK
'The Art of Mooting offers a novel and systematic step-by-step analysis of what makes great advocacy, through the development of essential skills and self-awareness in the cognitive, psychomotor, and affective spheres. Drawing from a strong theoretical base, this highly didactic book offers a practical guide into the high pedagogical value of mooting.'
