Essex Court Chambers (“ECC”) and the Singapore Academy of Law (“SAL”) warmly invite you to watch the ECC-SAL International Virtual Mooting Competition 2021 Final!
Come and watch young practitioners pit their advocacy skills against one another at the final of the ECC-SAL International Mooting Competition 2021 on 14 January! Following nine successful editions of the competition since 2012, the contest this year includes young advocates from Australia, Brunei, China, Hong Kong, India, Malaysia and Singapore. Advancing after several gruelling rounds involving over 20 other teams of promising young advocates, the finalists now argue their case before an illustrious panel of judges comprising a High Court Judge from the Singapore Supreme Court, a Federal Court Judge from Malaysia, and a Queen Counsel from the Essex Court Chambers in London.
This year, for the first time, all rounds of the Competition will take place online using Opus 2’s market-leading virtual hearing platform, and will replicate the challenges currently faced by advocates around the world.

ABOUT THE COMPETITION
The ECC-SAL International Mooting Competition offers young practitioners in the region an unrivaled opportunity to develop and demonstrate their advocacy and legal reasoning skills.
The moot problem is based on a fictional case over an international commercial dispute governed by English law to be heard and determined in the Singapore International Commercial Court. The Final will be heard as an appeal to the Singapore Court of Appeal. The winning team will be offered an all expenses paid two-week internship at Essex Court Chambers in London, one of the leading commercial sets of barristers’ chambers in England.
