Register now for the 2018 IHL Moot!

This is a great opportunity for those who are interested in international law, love arguing, and want to enhance their oral advocacy and legal research skills.

How does it work?
Participants compete in teams of 2 or three in three preliminary rounds as prosecution or defence. The top teams will then proceed to the semi-finals and grand final, where they will have the opportunity to moot in front of professionals in the international humanitarian law sector and ANU College of Law staff. The same fact problem will be used throughout the competition, although teams will swap between defence and prosecution.

When is it?
Preliminary rounds are in Weeks 7, 8 and 9, on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday nights (exact times and dates to be confirmed after registrations close). Semi-finals will be held in Week 10 and the Grand Final will follow in Week 11. Each moot takes approximately 90 minutes.

Do I need to know about international humanitarian law to participate?
No! All levels of knowledge and mooting experience are welcome, however, the level of knowledge expected is relatively higher than that in other mooting competitions. With that said, if you have not completed International Law, you are still able to participate, but will have to do a significant amount of research on your own.

In order to compete in the Moot, you must be a current International Law Society member. Membership can be purchased for $5 here: https://ilsmemberships.getqpay.com/

Only one person per team is required to fill out the registration form.

Registrations close 18 March at 5pm.
