Car Sticker

You are very well aware that UiTM law students like to drive to class. They have cars to the point that there isn't enough parking space.

In the light of them having cars, what better way to show their sense of belonging to UiTM, the law faculty and the Moot club than by parading the Moot Club car sticker.

Market Analysis Closed

The survey conducted on facebook with regards to the programme 'So, You Wanna Be A Lawyer?' has officially come to an end. Results are as follows:

Interested: 43
Maybe Interested: 49
Unable to join: 40
Didn't bother to reply: 38

Invitation sent out: Lost count.

Therefore, since most of the Moot Bench was occupied with Jessup and will be occupied with Maritime, it is then suggested that the above event be conducted in conjunction with the Inter Part Moot Competition, otherwise known as the Dean's Challenge Trophy next semester. Maybe somewhere in August.

Just keep your eyes out for the poster.

Yes, it will be even prettier than the AGM's poster.

p/s: What do feel about a whole week of lawyering business? 'So, You Wanna Be A Lawyer' plus a moot workshop, and maybe even a weekend of fun and games (Guitar Hero and bowling tournament for instance) in an event called "Mootness"? Drop us a line.

Maritime Moot 2009 alert!

Next monday we will kick off with a short course on carriage of goods by sea delivered by Dr. Irwin at the Moot Court around 9'ish'. It will be continued on Wednesday and be concluded on Friday. The short course will cover the basics of which will be dealt with in the moot problem. Inter alia, time charters, vessel seaworthiness etc.

Those of you who are interested to become a solicitor for Maritime are most welcome to join the class. Work on the memorials will begin the week after.

So the schedule for the carriage lecture specifically for the Maritime Moots are as follows:

Date: 2nd, 4th and 6th of March 2009.
Time: 9.30 onwards*
Venue: Moot Court*

*subject to change

There is also a vacancy in the Maritime Squad. Yes, only one. Therefore an audition will follow shortly after the last lecture on Friday. We are looking for female mooters. However, we do not mind if it's a male who makes it. It will be boring with only one girl in the team.

Details are as follows:

Date: 6th March 2009
Time: tba
Venue: Moot Court

Any questions regarding the Maritime Moots, feel free to click the link on the right hand side. Any question about the squad, feel free to bug Dr. Irwin.

Oh, did I mention that IMLAM 2009 will be held at the University of Queensland; Brisbane?

Yes kiddies... We fly on the 1st of July. We fly back to Malaysia most probably on the 8th of July.

Go google Brisbane.

Jessup... dear Jessup

We didn't make it into the final rounds.

We are saddened.

We shall go to Brisbane to mend our broken hearts.

4 Charter-Parties, one grounded ship, stupid Master, no dry-docking clause, and a screwed up arbitrator.

Sounds much more fun than Jessup.

Cheer Squad Trip

The club is organizing a trip for you fellas who would like to watch the Jessup Moots in Universiti Malaya.

Be forewarned that we are not allowed to scout or sit in other teams' session. So you will only be allowed to sit in team UiTM's moot session. Which will be a problem since UM's moot courts are cute. So there wont be much seats.

So we are limiting the trip to only 20 participants. That plus the other people who are part of the cheer squad will keep the UM moot courts occupied.

The bus leaves at 8.30 AM on Friday, 20th February. Find the name list at the Cempaka buildings. If it's full.. then, get a ride in someone's car. We need all the support we can get. Thank you.

p/s: No pom-poms allowed.

Maritime Moot 2009

The moot problem has been out for quite some time. However due to some problems, the club decided not to pursue this year's competition.

But since the Dean has given her word to help out with the financial aspects of the moot, we may be able to send a team. This year's moot will be held in the TC Beirne School of Law, University of Queensland.

Interested to read the moot problem? Click here. 92 pages long.

Even we got scared.

Work on the memorials will start promptly after Jessup. Submission is by April.

Proposal 02: Annual Grand Dinner

From the Moot Club discussion board on Facebook.

"I am talking about food, fun and fuzziness associated with prize giving and appreciation. Grand dinner la konsepnya....

It has been delayed for tooooo long. n rue and I have mooted (ironic giler) the idea of having it at the end of semester. maybe lepas exam. atau sebelum study week.

there are only two issues: money and venue.

financial wise, there are rumours of pending sponsorship which will be pushed for by the new moot bench.

what i want to really survey here is: WHERE DO WE EAT?

After extensive googling. I limit my proposed venues to only TWO.

the first being Soul-ed Out... located in Desa Sri hartamas. they cater for events and by the looks of it, they are a friendly and quirky bunch. just like we are. see more by clicking here: (food looks excellent)

the second being the empress cafe, depan the laundry bar. kat the curve. very stylish cafe... nice food. and we can all come after watching a movie or sumthin.

that is my idea la basically, since the dinner (in my point of view) should be rather informal and never uptight with protocols. it sucks. period!

now with a new and fresh moot club in mind... what would be your honest opinion.

p/s: i would also propose that we call the dinner: 'The Moot Meat'. cute huh?

now... respond fellow moot-clubbers. please and thank you."
