Competition & Judge in the Competition – “The All Kenya Moot Court Competition is a melting pot of some of the best legal minds our local law schools produce. The competition pulls its participants out of the comfort zone of an ordinary law student and plunges them into scholarly research of substantive and contemporary legal issues as well as critical analysis of evidence vis-à-vis the law. I highly recommend the competition to undergraduate law students in Kenya and the region.”
…I have no doubt in my mind on the value of moot courts to every law student…
I felt convinced to participate not just for the purposes of competing but also as a means of contributing to both the law and institutional reform agenda
For the Kabarak University teams at the AKMCC, their journey to participate started through thorough vetting for them to be picked as the team to represent the school… It was such an honour to present before panels of distinguished personalities in the Kenyan legal profession
Being a first timer in the field of mooting, emerging the winner of the 2014 AKMCC was a stepping stone for me to build into my interest in the field of litigation. I also appreciate to have secured internship placement at Transparency International, Kenya.
The remarkable performance is attributable to a relentless research, prayer, my interest and fascination with advocacy. I never gave or took excuse
The research at first was challenging and the trick to conquer such was to put myself in the drafter’s mind with the intention of elucidating what the question demanded… The end product has attracted a positive response and young lawyers to-be are preparing and looking forward to the next moot.
For any participant to gain more in any moot competition there's need for thorough preparation to ensure that one understands the law and facts and apply the combination of both. As a participant there's need to to listen keenly at every argument raised,weave every question into an argument and ensure one sharpens his/her skills in oration. These are the most valuable lessons I acquired from the competition and they are the skills that helped me emerge as one of the top in such a stiff competition
