Competitions provide an opportunity for VUWLSS members to hone their legal skills through practical experience. They involve real and tangible application of the law to simulated scenarios. Competing will only extend your legal knowledge.
VUWLSS organises and runs four main competitions annually: mooting, negotiation, client interviewing and witness examination. These events are open to all law students. Additionally, VUWLSS runs a mooting, client interviewing and negotiation competition specifically for 200-level students. VUWLSS runs competition training sessions targeted at both beginner and advanced levels to foster professional and personal development.
Competing in legal competitions carries a lot of prestige both within the University and the wider legal industry. Winners represent Victoria University of Wellington at the New Zealand Law Students’ Association national competitions. Opportunities to attend a number of international competitions are also available to VUWLSS members.
VUWLSS Competitions has their own Facebook page where you can find more information about competitions during the year! Be sure to check it out here.
