Part One Induction

An induction programme was made for the noobs of BLS today. Three reps from the club became facilitators and one had been allowed to ramble and promote the club in front of the 180 or so noobs.

He had in fact forgotten to mention about the blog and the Facebook group. However, he was given a second chance during the end of the induction and had promptly seized the opportunity to tell them noobs to google the club.

He hopes that at least a handful of them would submit to the will of the club. For there will always be food for those who fancy research and lawyering business.

As the joker who represented the club had managed to waffle during his pathetic speech, "The business of the club is built upon three Ms. Moot, Memorials, and Makan."

He was corrected by Dr. Irwin. The Three M's should in fact be: Meat, Meat and Meat.

Pity those who join this club. They are bound to be fed (fat?).

Let's just see how many will turn up for the AGM.

Wikipedia Link

I was surfing the net (obviously) and I was checking out the traffic of this site when suddenly I realized there was an incoming traffic from a link within Wikipedia.

Being the curious dude that I was, I clicked and searched, and lo and behold..

Under the above article, the Moot Club is enlisted as follows: 

UiTM Malaysia Law School has many students’ societies and clubs to help the students to be more independent, resourceful and all-rounder individuals.

  • Sekreteriat Mahasiswa Fakulti (Faculty Students Secreteriate)
  • Mooting Club [2]
  • Law Debating Club
  • Students' Community Law Club (SCLC)
  • Environmental Law & Awareness Club (EnLAC)

More importantly; there's a link from Wikipedia (the [2] next to the club's name) to this blog.



Pardon the pun?

Mr Edward 'Teddy' Bearrister has done it again. Moot Club, ... Meat Club, ... for the people who know the social and gastronomic habits of the club members know that it is the 'same difference' (to use a famous phrase). I suppose this page will also be used to document the culinary adventures of the Moot / Meat Club ... so no vegetarians allowed!

Join the Moot Club!

As most of you would probably have noticed, results are out. That basically signals the beginning of a new term.

New term is then logically followed by a bunch of younglings affectionately known as noobs. These noobs will come to you seniors asking "What activities can I join while being held captive in this dreaded faculty?", or "What kind of associations or clubs do the law students join?" or, the old time favourite, "Bro, what the heck is mooting?".

So guide them babies over to the Moot Club. All you really need is a thirst for the lawyering business and a Facebook account.

Why Facebook?

Well, it has occurred to us that there have been complaints that the club's activities are not widely made known to the public, there's not enough notices, they can't see them notices, and again the all time favourite, they don't even know what the heck it is in the first place. So, by having the club on Facebook and Blogger, these geniuses will have less to complain about. Activities and updates will be made known via the group's message board. And further complaints can be made via the group's wall. Plus, for those who really care, they can start reading the blog and maybe post a little something in the comments section.

Anything else I missed?

Oh yes, the AGM. Well, honestly we have no idea.. yet.

New Group on Facebook

Seems that there are a few of our friends who can't join the former group on Facebook because it was set to allow only people from the Malaysia network.

Some of us, seem to like being globally networked; rendering then unable to join the club.

Now they can. And I humbly invite you all to migrate to the following club's link:

Sorry Mickey and Minnie...

We lost against ATC. Though in a state of denial, we don't really feel sad. We had fun; which was the only thing we had in mind when deciding to join IHL at the very last minute.

ATC will be representing Malaysia to Hong Kong. They will carry and pass our love and affection to Mickey and the gang at Disneyland HK.

Meanwhile, the rest of the team will report to AL529 to finish what is left to be done for the Jessup memorials.

One moot after another... Seriously. We need a life.

IHL Finals

We are currently in UM, training for the finals against the prosecution team of ATC.

The defence team (Zin and Tammy) is making their final preparations. They were the only defence team which got more than 700 total marks. The prosecution team (Izmil and Alia) were only 6 marks behind the top prosecution team (ATC).

It is the submission of these people that it would be unlikely for the organizers to allow both teams from the same university to meet at finals. It would be utterly unfair.

Pray for us.

Somebody is dreaming of a trip to Hong Kong.

IHL Update

However tempting it would be to ramble on the events in the Moot Court; I am sad to inform you that these activities are classified.

Thanks for caring, by the way.

We can't have other teams snooping around. Right?

IHL & Jessup Status Update

Around 10 PM of the 2nd of December, we successfully submitted both briefs for the Prosecution and Defence. Alhamdulillah.

Today around 3.00 PM reps of the team will be going to ICRC (in the same building with Skrine) to draw lots and exchange memorials.

Meanwhile, Jessup memorials have kicked off with the first, third and fourth ground in full motion. The second ground is lagging quite a bit due to the hold up caused by IHL. Will get that part moving once the blokes doing that part comes back from Penang and Seremban respectively.
