Moots

were debates which formerly took place in the halls and libraries of Inns of Court. The benchers and the barristers, as well as the students, took an active part in these moots. Sir Simonds DʹEwes, in his Diary (1625–1629), says:

“I had lived mooted in law French before I was called to the bar.”—Nineteenth Century, November, 1892, p. 775.
