International operational law is a complex area, involving as it does a great deal of technical details and weighty values alike. But by placing the law the students have acquired in a context, such as in a fictional war crimes trial, one can sense the real nature of the area, with complicated facts and heightened moral stakes. Mooting bring genuine appreciation to its participants that administering international criminal justice is a painstaking, gradual process that requires a lot of patience, thinking and preparation.
