A Mootiful Life!

Vernon Nase

Little is known about the world of student mooting. Yet it is one of the most high-profile activities undertaken by law students as they compete on the world stage against other universities and develop lifelong professional skills. As it traces the life of Nickie, a mooting coach, this novel explores the politics, academic egos and cultural interface at universities in Australia and Hong Kong. Nickie threads his way through the pitfalls of academic life and mooting competition to find the solace of a love and the pain of separation.
