ALSA INTERNATIONAL MOOT COURT COMPETITION
A GROUP of students from the Faculty of Shariah and Law, Universiti Islam Sultan Sharif Ali (UNISSA) whose names are Nazihatul Afifah binti Haji Abd Hamid, Syazana Syafiqah Adilah binti Mahdini and Arif Azhan bin Awang Besar will be participating in ALSA International Moot Court Competition in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia which starts on the 18th August 2017 until 23rd August 2017.
The ALSA International Moot Court Competition (AIMCC) is a simulated arbitration hearing of an International Investment Dispute Settlement. Students from all over the world will send in their Written Memorials for the complainant and respondent of a fictional case written by professionals. After the Written Round (Memorials), selected teams will present their memorials for the complainant and the respondent in front of a Panel of Arbitrators in the Oral Round.
Through the competition, there will be a Legal Workshop and Symposium led by renown International Investment Lawyers. The participants will be given the opportunity to develop analytical skills and skills in legal research, writing, and advocacy and expand their knowledge on and become exposed to issues of international law in the simulated environment of an international court or an arbitral tribunal.
The competition promotes networking amongst law students, encourages the exchange of ideas and perspectives on contemporary legal issues, and, in turn, proliferates the development of the law. The experiences acquired from the AIMCC carry through in later life, helping to shape successful careers in different areas of legal practice.
