The participants consisted of UiTMLaw students, its international academic peers and industry collaborators, as well as the general public.

    Participants were exposed to the inner workings of the global response, including how the predicament affected the working method of the Security Council of the United Nations.

    There was an evaluation of the effectiveness of some approaches adopted by the United Nations to deal with international issues in view of COVID-19 pandemic such as ceasefire resolution for states in conflicts or affected by humanitarian crisis and the role of International Law Commission to ensure its relevance during the era of COVID-19 pandemic.

    Law students, particularly those taking International Law, benefitted from the first-hand insights of international speakers. This event also offered the participants the opportunity to establish international networking albeit in a limited way via an online connection.
