IX Annual CCCJ International Law Moot Court

 

Eight CARICOM law institutions will participate in the IX Annual Caribbean Court of Justice International Law Moot Court, to be held at the Court on Friday 10 March 2017:

 

  • Eugene Dupuch Law School
  • Hugh Wooding Law School
  • Norman Manley Law School
  • Department of Law of the University of Guyana
  • Faculty of Law of the University of Technology of Jamaica
  • Faculty of Law of the University of the West Indies (Cave Hill)
  • Faculty of Law of the University of the West Indies (Mona)
  • Faculty of Law of the University of the West Indies (St Augustine)

 

As is traditional, the Moot will focus on an Original Jurisdiction matter and is different from a mock trial, which usually refers to a simulated jury trial or Bench trial. It will not involve actual testimony by witnesses, cross-examination, or the presentation of evidence, but will focus solely on the application and interpretation of the law under the Revised Treaty of Chaguaramas.

 

Prizes will be awarded as follows:

 

The winning team overall will be awarded the Caribbean Court of Justice International Law Moot Challenge Shield. The team will receive a replica to be kept permanently. The best team from an academic (i.e., non-professional) institution will be awarded a plaque.

 

Further prizes:

 

  • a gold medal to each member of the winning team;
  • a silver medal to each member of the second-placed team;
  • certificates awarded to the winning team and the second-placed team, to be remitted at the graduation ceremony from their institution;
  • a bronze medal to each member of the other teams;
  • a certificate of participation will be awarded to each member of each team and to members of the Moot Registry.
