Virtual mooting : using technology to enhance the mooting experience
Yule, Jennifer M., McNamara, Judith, & Thomas, Mark N. (2009) Virtual mooting : using technology to enhance the mooting experience. Journal of the Australasian Law Teachers Association, 2(1 & 2), pp. 231-243.
While a range of benefits to students participating in mooting have been identified by the legal education literature, there are impediments to students participating in mooting that have been revealed by recent surveys of law students at QUT. These impediments include time, geographical location and a failure to perceive the benefits of mooting. This paper will explore the benefits of using technology to overcome these impediments, evaluate technological options to facilitate distance mooting, such as the use of Second Life, Elluminate and video conferencing, and will recommend a trial of these options.
