All Kenyan Moot Court Competition

About the All Kenyan Moot Court Competition

The All Kenyan Moot Court Competition (AKMCC) is an annual national moot court competition hosted by the Kenyatta University School of Law (KUSOL) and involving all Law Schools in Kenya. The competition focuses mainly on matters of International law and is set to become one of the largest annual gatherings in the Kenyan legal calendar.

This budding & highly promising competition is geared towards building and underscoring the pivotal role of scholarly research, seasoned analytical and advocacy skills as well as the development of aplomb in making public presentations; an invaluable investment for all in the legal profession. We moreover endeavor to create a mentorship relationship between the legal profession and the law students even as we champion the development of Kenyan jurisprudence on matters of International Law. Towards this, we seek to indulge leading & willing organizations as well as law firms.

The inaugural Competition was officially opened by the Honorable Attorney General of the Republic of Kenya, Prof. Githu Muigai in February, 2013 and presided over by Justice Lee Muthoga, Judge of the former International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda (ICTR). The theme of the Competition was, “Safeguarding territorial integrity for peaceful coexistence”. The case problem sought to interrogate both national and international law governing emerging as well as looming territorial disputes within the East African Region.

The Competition was held in the Kenyatta University School of Law’s State-of-the-Art Moot facility courtesy of the University’s Vice Chancellor Prof. Olive Mugenda as well as the Students’ Association. 9 teams from 3 Universities participated.

The 2nd edition of the Competition took place on the14th and 15th of February 2014. The edition was officially opened by the Chairperson of the Law Society of Kenya, Mr Eric Mutua and presided over by Hon. Prof J.B Ojwang, Judge of the Supreme Court of Kenya
