SZABIST IHL Moot Court Competition 2012
Mooting has emerged as a critical component of legal education because it provides the skills training element for the fundamental skills necessary for a prospective lawyer. Indeed many leading law schools across the world have either made mooting compulsory or forms an important part of the curriculum. Mooting offers a systematic training process of the essential skills of problem solving, legal analysis, drafting legal submissions and the development of public speaking. The ability to articulate one's thoughts and arguments condensing disparate, often conflicting legal authorities into succinct and persuasive arguments is arguably the single most important weaponry in the lawyer's arsenal.
The SLS has taken the initiative to host the 'SZABIST International Humanitarian Law Moot Court Competition 2012′ from 14-15th January 2012 in Karachi. International Humanitarian Law (also known as the law of war or law of armed conflict) is that body of international rules that seeks to limit the effects of armed conflict for humanitarian reasons by protecting victims of war. Pakistan is a conflict zone and in the current environment the rules of International Humanitarian Law are relevant to us more than ever. Therefore, there is a strong need that our upcoming lawyers should have the understanding of the principles of this very important international legal regime.
Law colleges from all over Pakistan have been invited to participate in the Competition.
