QUT Torts Moot

About the competition

The QUT Torts Moot is an international mooting competition hosted by QUT's School of Law.

It's a unique event that provides insights into torts practice. Each year we welcome teams from universities across Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific.

Mooting builds essential skills for legal practice, including legal research, advocacy and teamwork.

The moot final takes place in the Supreme Court of Queensland, adjudicated by eminent judges and high-profile legal professionals.
