Judge in the Jessup Moot 2015 Competition

I was invited and given the opportunity to be one of the panel of judges in the Jessup Moot 2015 Competition last Saturday, 07.02.2015.

It was an experience I would always remember because the only other time I was involved in the competition was nearly 20 years ago in 1995 when I was a second year student in Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia handling the same competition in ILKAP, Institut Latihan Kehakiman dan Perundangan, the training center for those in the judiciary. At that time ILKAP was in Wisma Sime Daby in Kuala Lumpur and not in its current sprawling campus in Bandar Baru Bangi.

How time have changed.

It was a great experience as I was partnered with Session Court Judge, Tuan Hakim Timothy Finlayson and Encik Saiful Izan, the legal officer for Malaysian Red Crescent.

The competing teams were quite good in their submissions of the case and one of them, the UiTM mooting team went on to the finals but was beaten by the eventual winner from University Malaya.

Congratulations to the winner and hope they'll be as good in Washington for the world finals.
