In this episode of The Protégé Podcast, host Naomi Neilson is joined by Australian National University (ANU) law student and former sub-team captain of Team Australia, Madeleine McGregor, to talk through her experiences with mooting – both national and international – and go over why it’s so beneficial to her future career. 

Commenting on what advantages mooting law students can take into their new legal pathways, Madeleine said that while there is a lot to learn and take away during university, understanding how to be an advocacy lawyer is the “one thing missing”. 

“That’s why I wanted to get into mooting in these competitions, [to pick up] the element of oral advocacy or written advocacy, and the art of constructing an argument, taking a stance and really sort of fighting for a side,” she said.
