All student members of the Inn are welcome to be involved in the Debating and Mooting clubs. The clubs meet in the evenings at the Inn a number of times each term. Both clubs also take part in various internal and external competitions. Most competitions are limited to those currently studying for the GDL or BPTC but those who are pre/post-BPTC are still welcome to attend the club meetings. Debating and Mooting both provide excellent practice for pupillage interviews and future appearances in court. Please note that only members of Lincoln's Inn are eligible to take part in the Inn's Debating and Mooting Clubs and their activities and competitions.
