9-12 MARCH 2016

Thomas Philip congratulates the University of Malaya Law Faculty team for their achievements at the 14th Red Cross International Humanitarian Law Moots 2016, held in Hong Kong this year.

We were delighted to have been able to assist with their preparation and are very proud of their efforts. The team comprising Vinodhan Kuppusamy, Lisa Natasha, Najihah Rusli and Lim Yew Yi made it all the way to the Semi-Finals and won the award for Best Memorial for the Prosecution.

The ICRC International Humanitarian Law Moot is an annual moot court competition organised by the Hong Kong Red Cross and International Committee of the Red Cross. This year was the 14th edition of the Asia Pacific Regional Round which featured 24 teams from 20 countries who were National Champions themselves.

"Thomas Philip was kind enough to clear their busy schedules to help us by listening to our submission. They assisted in giving constructive comments on our submission style in making it more persuasive and engaging. They also helped us identify certain issues and loopholes in our arguments to make it more concise. Additionally, we also had the opportunity to observe some of their associates submit on several on-going cases during their weekly advocacy sessions that is open to students. This helped us pick up some styles in presenting and answering questions. We would like to thank Thomas Philip for their help and support in assisting our team for the IHL Moot Competition."
