    UiTMLaw triumphs as champions in LAWASIA Moot competition

    In the 18th LAWASIA International Moot Competition (National Rounds), which took place from 18 to 20 August 2023, students from the Faculty of Law Universiti Teknologi MARA (UiTMLaw) demonstrated their prowess in advocacy by securing victory. The competition was organised by the LAWASIA International Moot Secretariat and the Bar Council of Malaysia. The event was hosted at the Asian International Arbitration Centre (AIAC) in Kuala Lumpur.

    Representing UiTMLaw, two teams were selected and trained for the competition. The first team comprised Nur Sakina Huda Jazman Azi, Nur Atiqah Azrein, and Nurul Athirah Hairol Nizal. The second team included Izzati Syahirah Zainudin, Fatihah Soraya Sofian, and Iman Nabeeha Ahmad Sabri.

    Emerging victorious, team one progressed to the final round and secured the championship title by prevailing over their counterparts from the Faculty of Law at the University of Malaya. The moot competition faithfully replicated an arbitration proceeding, during which participants meticulously researched intricate legal matters, scrutinised pertinent legal provisions, and articulated persuasive arguments to support their assigned cases.

    The moot problem presented in the 18th LAWASIA International Moot Competition (National Rounds) revolved around legal quandaries between two fictional nations, including applying AI to arbitrate a legal dispute, countering terrorism and the right to privacy. An application for a comprehensive hearing was submitted to the Arbitral Panel, forming the crux of the competition. The competition’s overarching objective was aimed at nurturing the upcoming generation of legal practitioners and advocates, honing their aptitude and skills to navigate intricate legal dilemmas. Students enrolled in legal studies are poised to amass enriching experiences, contributing to the augmentation of their self-assurance, advocacy acumen, and compositional finesse.

    Esteemed faculty trainers, Professor Dr. Irwin Ooi Ui Joo and Dr. Ummi Hani’ Maso’od believe that these aspiring legal minds will be equipped to cultivate the essential proficiencies and expertise requisite for prominence within the legal sphere. This dual enrichment extends to their scholarly proficiency, further enhancing their academic mastery.
