On the 15th of April, twenty-five LLB students from ARU London's Law Society participated in an educational guided tour of the Houses of Parliament. There, they had the opportunity to learn about the history of the Monarchy, House of Commons, and the House of Lords. They were introduced to the legislative process and the methods for contacting our representatives and legislators.
The society also took part in the Contract Mooting Competition, which took place at Charterhouse earlier this trimester, on the 28th March 2023.The debate covered a crucial part of the Contract law topic. The students have been working on Promissory estoppel doctrine and Exemption clauses, appealing and responding to them.
As a Supreme Court Justice, John O'Leary played an active role in the trial, directing the case's conduct in accordance with applicable law and procedure. The Lord took notes on the evidence and determines on legal issues as the case progresses. Nonetheless, he provides us with a straight-forward judgement and specific suggestions for improvement. John O’Leary deserves our gratitude on behalf of all members of the Law Society.

Student Mooting, one of our most essential classes, helps students develop the skills necessary to present legal arguments. The Moot provides students with the opportunity to discuss and learn about legal issues. It encourages students to consider the law and conduct investigation on it.
Students gain experience working in groups and learning from one another. Mooting is comparable to a simulated trial. Two parties argue a legal matter before a fictitious judge, who determines the winner based on what each party states. Courtroom argumentation is an integral component of studying law. Students are able to demonstrate their knowledge of advocacy and the law.
Moot Court is a required course, and senior students must deliver presentations for internal evaluation. Students benefit greatly from these opportunities because they help them improve their writing and oral argumentation skills, which they will use frequently after law school. Moot courts also provide students with the opportunity to observe first-hand how a courtroom operates.
Our Law society team is preparing for the second Mooting competition in October 2023. Tort Law will be the subject on which the students will focus their efforts.
