Moot court competition in Al Ahliyya Amman University
A group of students from the Faculty of Law won the moot court competition against a group of students from Al Ahliyya Amman University in Jordan.
The competition was sponsored by the Palestinian Justice Enhancement Program (PJEP), funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID). The two groups pleaded over a hypothetical case involving international disputes and human rights. They acted as if they were pleading before the International Court of Justice. The arbitration commission, consisting of academics and experts of international law, selected An-Najah University’s group of students as the winners.
In the conclusion of the competition, the wining group received several prizes and certificates of appreciation. The Palestinian Justice Enhancement program prepared the students before the competition. Participating students were thus fully knowledgeable of the rules and regulations of the competitions, as the competition required the two groups be trained on how to proceed in the sessions of a moot court before a judicial panel. Also, the training course illustrated the topics of the case, how they are to be studied, and how to create legal pleadings and present the case for experts, jurists and judges to deliver a verdict. This contributed to developing skills and abilities of students from both universities.
