The B.A. Mallal Moot is the oldest mooting competition in Singapore, dating back to 1964. It has been organised by the NUS Law's Mooting and Debating Club since, and is proudly sponsored by Allen & Gledhill LLP. This year's moot problem was about duty of care issues under tort law, in relation to self-driving cars.
