Навчальні судові процеси: поглиблений практичний курс (англійською мовою)
Moot courts is a teaching tool used by law schools to introduce students to the practice of law. Popular in US and Europe, it is a gradually becoming a part of legal education in many post-soviet countries, including Ukraine. Participating in moot court competitions is a unique opportunity for law students to dig into the facts and law of the case, develop research, writing and oral presentation skills, boost their self-esteem and get the feeling of the profession long before their classmates who are only limited to the ‘traditional’ law school programs. Kyiv Mohyla students have been doing moot courts since early 2000th and we have a substantial success record in major international moot court competitions, including the Philip C. Jessup International Law Moot Court Competition, the biggest and the oldest completion of this kind. To continue growing, in 2013 we have launched Introduction to Moot Courts course aimed at preparing 2nd year students for mooting. Due to this, 2nd and 3rd year students are now fully prepared to participate in and even win international competitions (e.g. Kyiv Mohyla has become the winner of the 2016 Telders Public International Law Moot).The course was designed for advanced mooters striving to achieve meaningful results in their competitions. As it is taught in Spring semester when most teams prepare for the oral rounds, the course will be focused on oral presentation skills, including techniques to overcome stress and anxiety; courtroom / procedural legalize (legal language); technical issues of mooting as a part of Kyiv Mohyla team.
