This chapter provides a step-by-step guide to assist students through the process of preparing and delivering a moot argument with reference made to associated issues, such as conducting legal research and production of a skeleton argument. It highlights the aspects of mooting that students often find worrying or difficult, such as formulating a flowing argument, developing a confident oral presentation style, and dealing with judicial interventions. The chapter is a general guide that will be invaluable for preparation of any moot but a sample moot is used throughout as a source of specific explanation and illustration.
