    Mooting, also known as a mock trial, is a form of simulated learning that is frequently used in legal education to teach practical skills. With the increasing advancement of technologies, educators have begun to incorporate a digital element into mooting in order to enhance its educational capabilities. In other areas of education, the use of virtual reality technology to facilitate simulated learning has shown to successfully improve students’ learning. Using experiential learning theory as a foundation, this paper aims to investigate the effects of virtual reality in the context of legal education and to propose a theoretical framework to guide the successful implementation of the novel technology specifically for mooting. Semi-structured interviews were conducted at a UK university. Findings show three main groups of themes that are relevant when implementing virtual reality in mooting: effectiveness, suitability, and emotions.
