International Moot & Advocacy Competition (Digital)
Building on 9 years experience in organising the largest national advocacy competition – as many as 60 UK educational institution:
The UKLSA is now working towards – Preparing lawyers for the digital era; and – Providing training opportunities for students, of any discipline, across the world.
Why digital, why international and why open to non-law students?
- We currently live in the digital era and must prepare for it.
- We believe that digitalisation will make justice more accessible, if it is used ethically. We hope this digital competition will contribute to promoting digitalisation of legal systems to benefit all people.
- Transactions and legal issues are increasingly more international.
- International collaborations and exchange lead to faster progress towards improving justice for all.
- We believe interdisciplinary efforts lead to faster progress, and we hope to encourage more people from non-legal backgrounds to join the legal profession.
- It is now increasingly more common for people from non-legal backgrounds (e.g. have studies other subjects) to train as lawyers.
