X ANNUAL CCJ INTERNATIONAL LAW MOOT

FRIDAY 9 MARCH 2018

 

The Caribbean Court of Justice will hold its X Annual International Law Moot on Friday 9 March 2018.

 

Eight teams have registered to participate, they are the:

 

  • Eugene Dupuch Law School (The Bahamas)
  • Hugh Wooding Law School (Trinidad & Tobago)
  • Norman Manley Law School (Jamaica)
  • Department of Law of the University of Guyana

Volunteer students of the Faculty of Law of the University of the West Indies-St. Augustine will man the Moot Registry. They will fill the roles of: Registrar; Court Support Officer; Marshal; Timekeeper and Usher.

 

The Moot Rules were amended in 2014 to allow for e-filing. Thus, the Moot Registry volunteers will locate Mooters’ relevant authorities in the Court library and upload them to memory sticks for the Moot Judges, rather than produce voluminous binders of printed documents.

 

Lecture-demos of the courtroom technology will be provided for all mooting teams, their advisors, and Moot Registry personnel prior to Moot Day.

 

The mooting sessions will follow this schedule:

 

Leader for the claimant: 20 minutes

Junior for the claimant: 15 minutes

Leader for the defendant: 20 minutes

Junior for the defendant: 15 minutes

Right to reply of applicant/claimant: 5 minutes (not obligatory)
