The United Kingdom & Eire Malaysian Law Students’ Union (KPUM) organised a Moot Competition for law students on the 22nd and 23rd of February 2020 at BAC, PJ campus.
The competition sponsored by one of the top legal firms in the country, Shearn Delamore & Co is aimed to develop advocacy skills of law students in a less intimidating environment, where they could make mistakes and learn, rather than be judged on them, literally!
A total of 44 law students mainly from BAC participated in the competition assisted by 21 volunteers from KPUM. The judging panel were senior legal practitioners from Shearn Delamore & Co. such as Mr. Anand Raj, Mr. Indran Shanmuganathan, Ms. Sathya Kumardas and Mr. Raphael Kok from the University of Malaya.
The competition garnered positive feedback from both students and the panel of judges. Mr. Indran Shanmuganathan and his fellow colleagues from Shearn Delamore & Co, complimented the KPUM Club for organising the competition. Participants were equally grateful for the opportunity to experience an important aspect of the ‘real life’ of a lawyer.
