National Rounds Malaysia
We are delighted to inform you that LAWASIA together with the Bar Council is organizing the National Rounds of the 4th LAWASIA International Moot Competition.
The National Rounds will be held on Saturday 8 August 2009 and Sunday, 9 August, 2009 and will take place at the Kuala Lumpur Regional Centre for Arbitration.
We are indeed privileged to have the Kuala Lumpur Regional Centre for Arbitration author the Moot Problem for the 4th LAWASIA Moot Competition. For the participating students to experience to fullness of arbitration as an alternative dispute resolution mechanism, the Kuala Lumpur Regional Centre for Arbitration has also very kindly agreed for their premises to be used for the competition.
Whist we are not unaware that some Universities/Colleges might feel that their students are somewhat disadvantaged by the topic of the Moot Problem, LAWASIA nonetheless feels that as in legal practice lawyers have to be adapt and versatile in researching the law. The importance of inculcating amongst law students the ability to face challenges and indeed the tenacity to accept lifes lot is an important aspect of the training of a young lawyer.
Winning is not final and losing is never fatal; Sir Winston Churchill so 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 embolden 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 fiber that causes the collapse of civilizations.
It is with those thoughts in mind that LAWASIA together with the Bar Council extends this invitation to you to join us in this endeavor by sending a Moot team to participate in the National Rounds of the 4th LAWASIA Moot Competition. We very much look forward to your teams participation.
