THE MOOT PROBLEM

The Moot Problem and Moot Handbook, which contains the rules of the Competition, will be released once registrations has closed.
The Preliminary Rounds and Quarter-Finals will be based on a first-instance hearing before the SICC.
The Semi-Finals and Final Round will be based on an appeal from the SICC to the Singapore Court of Appeal. A judgment forming part of the Moot Problem will be released for the purposes of the later rounds of the Competition.
