17th LAWASIA International Moot Competition – Malaysia National Rounds

We are delighted to inform you that LAWASIA and the Malaysia Bar Council are organising National Rounds for the 17th LAWASIA International Moot Competition once again!

This year’s National Rounds will be held on Friday, 9th September 2022 to 11th September 2022. This year’s LAWASIA International Moot Competition – Malaysia National Rounds will take place virtually.

The objective of LAWASIA is to train aspiring young lawyers to be adaptive and versatile in researching the law when they are presented with challenging legal issues as we believe that teaching law students the ability to face challenges and having strong tenacity are important aspects to their training as young lawyers.

“Winning is not final and losing is never fatal,” Sir Winston Churchill eloquently expresses his thoughts and perspectives of winning and losing in those simple yet, profound words. We believe that all participating students will leave the competition as winners – enriched by the experience, prepared for what is to come and inspired to reach out to the stars; for it is not failure itself that destroys mankind but the inability to accept defeat with grace, strength of character and the lack of moral fibre that causes the collapse of civilisations.

It is with those thoughts in mind that the LAWASIA Moot Standing Committee, together with the Malaysian Bar Council, extend this invitation to you to join this endeavour by sending your best teams to participate in the National Rounds of the 17th LAWASIA International Moot Competition. We look forward to your participation!
