Abstract

In a very full curriculum, finding time and space to develop important skills such as communication and collaboration can be difficult. These issues are exacerbated in a post-graduate Juris Doctor degree. In this article, the authors describe and evaluate the moot exercise that has been introduced into their first year JD core unit, Torts, at the University of Western Australia and particularly, how it has provided students with the opportunity to develop crucial skills that align with the national threshold Teaching and Learning Outcomes (TLOs), notably TLO 5; communication and collaboration.
