International MOOT Court
International Moot Courts are interschool competitions that take place across the globe in front of a mock International Tribunal where students act as counsellors of law; advocating the different sides of a case based on a problem written by an organization. The students analyze the problem, identify the legal issues, research the law, write the briefs and orally present it to the moot court. In essence, the students learn how to litigate a case in front of an international tribunal doing what an attorney does in real life.

Congratulations go to Kuzivakwashe Khuleya who is one of the first Zimbabwean pupils to participate in the International Moot Court Competition.
His team, comprising pupils from Dominican Convent, Arundel and Midlands Christina College - has qualified for the next round which will be held in Romania towards the end of June. May he come up for a Rector’s handshake.
