National Rounds Malaysia

We are delighted to inform you that LAWASIA and the Malaysian Bar Council are organising National Rounds for the 16th LAWASIA International Moot Competition once again!

This year’s National Rounds will be held on Friday, 10th September to Sunday, 12th September 2021. In light of the global pandemic, this year’s LAWASIA International Moot Competition will take place virtually.


The objective of LAWASIA is to train aspiring young lawyers to be adaptive and versatile in researching the law when they are presented with challenging legal issues as we believe that teaching law students the ability to face challenges and having strong tenacity are important aspects to their training as young lawyers.


"Winning is not final and losing is never fatal," Sir Winston Churchill eloquently expresses his thoughts and perspectives of winning and losing in those simple yet, profound words. We believe that all participating students will leave the competition as winners – enriched by the experience, prepared for what is to come and inspired to reach out to the stars; for it is not failure itself that destroys mankind but the inability to accept defeat with grace, strength of character and the lack of moral fibre that causes the collapse of civilisations.


It is with those thoughts in mind that LAWASIA together with the Malaysian Bar Council, extend this invitation to you to join this endeavour by sending your best teams to participate in the National Rounds of the 16th LAWASIA International Moot Competition. We look forward to your participation!
