UPH’s Faculty of Law Moot Court team emerged as the champion on the National Round of the International Humanitarian Law (IHL) Competition that was held on 30 November - 2 December 2012 in Morning Star Academy and Manhattan Hotel Kuningan, Jakarta. This year's competition — the 7th edition held by International Committee for the Red Cross (ICRC) and Indonesian Society of International Law (ISIL) — marks new dynamics in the development of the participating teams’ performance. The atmosphere this year was highly competitive as all of the best oralists and memorial awards were achieved by individuals and teams from various universities. Although it had been noted that the positions were dominated by three universities only, the margin of score with other universities were really tied.
The team will be representing Indonesia to compete in the 11th Red Cross International Humanitarian Law (IHL) Moot Court on 14th - 16th March, 2013, Hong Kong; the inter-university competition for Asia-Pacific region co-hosted by the Hong Kong Red Cross and the International Committee of the Red Cross in collaboration with the University of Hong Kong, City University of Hong Kong, and the Chinese University of Hong Kong.
