Mooting is widely accepted as a ‘fun’ activity. Students, or perhaps more accurately some students, appear to like mooting and some staff like judging moots. This article seeks to discuss the proposition that mooting is not just ‘fun’, but that it can also be something more valuable, ie a vehicle for learning. The article is based on the research conducted by Gillespie and Watt published elsewhere (Gillespie and Watt, 2006). It is not, however, a rehearsal of the research, but rather seeks to build on the findings by questioning the use of mooting within the curriculum.
