Course Aims

This course aims to provide opportunities for students to engage in competitive mooting competitions with other universities and institutions both within Hong Kong and outside Hong Kong. The focus will be upon synthesizing the knowledge and skills already acquired on substantive law courses and to apply that knowledge and skills in a courtroom context. The course aims to develop research, analytical, organisational and advocacy skills by confronting students with complex issues of both fact and law in a courtroom situation. Within the structured setting provided by the course students can prepare for, and participate in, such international mooting competitions as the Philip C. Jessup International law Moot, the Willem C. Vis Commercial Arbitration Moot, the Red Cross International Humanitarian law Moot, the Manfred Lachs International Space Law Moot, Human Rights Law Moots, Foreign Direct Investment Moot, WTO Law Moots, the International Maritime Law Arbitration Moot and other moots in which the School participates.
