Register now for the 2017 Red Cross International Humanitarian Law Moot! Enjoy arguing with other law students? Want to learn more about international law? Then find a partner and sign up for the ANU rounds of the IHL Moot!

The winning team will have the opportunity to attend the National Finals of the IHL Moot at the Australian Law Students Association Conference In Canberra in July.

How does it work?
Participants compete in teams of 2 in three preliminary rounds as prosecution or defence. The top teams will then proceed to the semi-finals and grand final, where they will have the opportunity to moot in front of professionals in the international humanitarian law sector and ANU College of Law staff. The same fact problem will be used throughout the competition, although teams will swap between defence and prosecution.

When is it?
Preliminary rounds are in Weeks 3, 4 and 5 on Wednesday or Friday nights (times and dates to be confirmed). Semi-finals will be held in Week 8 and the Grand Final will follow in Week 9. Each moot takes approximately 90 minutes.

Do I need to know about international humanitarian law to participate?
No! All levels of knowledge and mooting experience are welcome, however the competition is primarily aimed at later-year law students who have some mooting experience.
