International Law Moot Court Community (ILMCC) is a community in Universitas Pelita Harapan which facilitates its students to compete in international moot court competitions, such as the Jessup International Court of Justice Moot, the Foreign Direct Investment International Arbitration Moot, and the WTO Dispute Settlement Moot.
This website serves as a central resource for all external mooting at UPH.
What Is Moot Court?
A moot court competition simulates a court hearing, in which participants analyse a problem, research the relevant law, prepare written submissions, and present oral argument. Moot problems are typically set in areas of law that are unsettled or that have been subject to recent developments. They usually involve two grounds of appeal, argued by each side.
Why Should I Moot?
At Law school, the closest experience that a law student can get to appearing in a court is mooting. Mooting is the better way to learn the law than to read, interpret, comprehend, and understand research, frame arguments, and write. By doing Moot Court, the experience, the exposure and the memories it will give a Law student is unrivaled when compared to any other activities in Law school.
