The Annual Michael Kirby Contract Law Moot Competition is hosted by Victoria Law School in the College of Law and Justice at Victoria University (VU).

This four-day annual competition is open to teams across Australia. It is the largest moot court competition in Australia, and has been running since 2011. Winners of this competition win prize money and usually go on to compete in international mooting competitions.

Mooting is the oldest form of legal training for law advocates. At VU, mooting competitions can be selected as an elective unit in our undergraduate law degree.

The Kirby Moot demonstrates VU’s strong industry connections. It is a fixture in the legal calendar and has strong support from the County Court of Victoria, members of the Victorian Bar, various law firms and practical legal training institutions. Law professionals are invited to judge the rounds and provide feedback to students.
