On 20th-21st of November, the National round of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) International Humanitarian Law Moot Court competition took place at the FLP.
Six teams composed of two mooters competed in English acting in turn as the Defence and the Prosecution pleading a fictitious case before the International Criminal Court. This Moot court organised by the ICRC is a great way to stimulate legal thinking and helped students to acquire a specific method of reasoning and learning how to develop arguments appropriately. Students also improved their presentation skills, debating skills and English!
The teams have been trained by Dr. Perrine from the University of Luxembourg. This year ILSTA had the opportunity to take an active part in the Moot court, with the contribution of Ms. Alina Timus as a judge in the final round.
Congratulations to all teams and special congrats to the winning team Lounglavanh VONGXAY and Souksavanh VONGTHONGCHIT, which will participate to the International Round in March.
