The Best Mooter Trophy is named after Mr Mah Weng Kwai, a past President of LAWASIA in recognition of his commitment to mooting and raising the standards of the LAWASIA International Moot competition to what you have witnessed at this Conference.
The ability to articulate one's thoughts and arguments condensing disparate, conflicting legal authorities into succinct and persuasive arguments in a professional, gracious, persuasive, and congenial demeanor is a very important quality of lawyer.
The Best Mooter Trophy is awarded to the mooter who best demonstrates the above qualities. In arriving at its decision, the Committee not only took the scores of the individual mooters into account but also the views and comments made by the Moot Judges.
The trophy goes to: Alwin Rajasurya Anthony from Advance Tertiary College, Malaysia
LAWASIA BEST ENDEAVOUR PRIZE
This competition is not about winning but about winners because as Sir Winston Churchill said "Success is never final, failure is never fatal. It is the courage that counts".
In the last five days, we saw courage in the face of adversity, honour in defeat and faith in despair. Despite their inexperience and limited usage of the language, they demonstrated courage, determination and dignity against the odds.
The LAWASIA Best Endeavour Prize is awarded to the team that overcame challenges, difficulties and obstacles to compete in this competition.
The trophy goes to: Kobe University Faculty of Law, Japan
