The UNSW Law Society Cabinet is a student elected group who oversee the day-to-day operations of the Law Society. Led by the Presidents, Natasha and Fletcher, the team consists of 10 Vice-Presidents, a Secretary and a Treasurer governing each of our portfolios.

Vice-President (Mooting) - Leigh Gordon
Mooting is a simulated courtroom experience in which two teams of two students each argue either side of a hypothetical fact scenario before a bench of three volunteer judges. The primary goal of this Portfolio is to encourage student participation in this extracurricular activity, both internally and externally. We are responsible, internally, for the Beginners, Intermediate and Senior Mooting Competitions, as well as the Open Moot. We are also responsible for the selection and supervision of UNSW’s external mooting teams, who participate both nationally and internationally.
Our aim and motivation is twofold: to help students establish and improve the skills that will see them through their degrees and legal careers, and to introduce students to other members of their cohorts and the UNSW Law community, thereby encouraging an inclusive and judgement-free learning environment.
Mooting is an extracurricular that every law student should try at least once. It is a literal life-changer!
