LAWASIA Moot Team 2009 Auditions

The auditions were held at the Moot Court on 20 March 2009, 9.30 p.m. A record number of students auditioned for the squad, i.e. 13 (a lucky number for some of you). Thank you to all you brave souls for having the guts to face a bench consisting of Mr Nazim G Shaari, Pn Mazlina Mahali, Cik Ummi Hani and yours truly. Seven mooters were chosen for the team (in order of merit):

1. Hilwa Nazifa (Part 2)
2. Shairil Farhana (Part 2)
3. Shaqib (Part 6)
4. Muhd Danial (Part 4)
5. Azad Akhbar (Part 3)
6. Aisyah (Part 4)
7. Muhd Khairil (Part 1)

The unlucky six who just missed the cut:

8. Mohd Akmal (Part 2)
8. Darren Nicholas (Part 3)
(Both Akmal and Darren are tied for eight place)
10. Aminu Razif (Part 1)
11. Muhd Rahimi (Part 1)
12. Syamimi (Part 2)
13. Farid Afwan (Part 1)

For those who have made it, congratulations and good luck. You are about to embark on wonderful journey of intellectual and personal discovery ... and occasionally gastronomic adventure.

For the who missed the cut, do not give up. Please attend our workshops and do take part in next semester's Inter-Part Moot Competition, The Dean's Challenge Trophy. I am in the midst of dreaming up a devious question for you to handle. Please try out for the next squad.

LAWASIA Update for UiTM mooters

I'm sorry if you were redirected here after googling LAWASIA. That is entirely Google's fault. But if you are a UiTM law student, then you've found what you're looking for.

The Workshop for LAWASIA kicked off around 9.30 with a 'Mooting 101' lecture by the Lifetime Dictator, Azinuddin Karim. Quite a bunch of people came, including a bunch of part-ones; which is a very good thing.

The not so good thing is that there are not as much female future mooters as I would've wished.

The Audition on the coming Friday is scheduled to 9.00 PM, as opposed to the time set out in the notice.

Therefore, we will see you at the Moot Court on Friday at approximately 9.00 PM.

Samples of last year's Jessup winning memorials can be obtained by clicking here and here.

p/s: Seriously, we need more female mooters.
