RC IHL Moot (2021)
The Hong Kong Red Cross International Humanitarian Law Moot is an annual international moot court competition organized by the Hong Kong Red Cross and International Committee of the Red Cross in collaboration with universities in Hong Kong. The moot started as a local moot in 2003. In recent times more than 100 law schools have participated in the local and regional rounds each year, with the top 20-odd teams making it to the international rounds. Counsel needs to prepare written and oral submissions for both sides (Prosecutor and Defendant) before a mock International Criminal Court.
For the 2020 edition, owing to travel restrictions brought about by Covid-19, the tournament winner was adjudged by memorials only. As the restrictions persisted, the 2021 edition adopted the online format for the oral rounds.
