Law Student of University of Indonesia


FACULTY OF LAW, UNIVERSITY OF INDONESIA
WINS INT’L PSEUDO-TRIAL COMPETITION
Hanna Azkiya, a female law student from University of Indonesia (UI) law student, one of my junior colleagues, won the internationally prestigious Philip C. Jessup Moot Court Pseudo-Trial Competition in the United States beating more than 200 participants from 95 universities of other countries, an official said.

Hanna beat over 200 students including those from the U.S., Britain, Australia, Singapore, China and Malaysia, he said, adding that the announcement of the winner made by the committee of the International Law Students Association on March 31 at 9 p.m. local time.

The pseudo-trial in Philip C. Jessup Moot Court Competition constitutes trial simulation from The Hague-based International Court of Justice (ICJ). This competition was for the first time held by the International Students Association under the aupices of the American Society of International Law in 1960.

According to our Dean, Prof. Hikmahanto Juwana, S.H., LL.M, Ph.D., the oralist is a student acting as solicitor making arguments in response to questions put forwarded by the judges. Besides the requirement of mastering the language used in the competition, the oralist must answer the questions correctly and in the right words and sentences during the trial. She gave explanations to queries from a panel of judges. Of course, an oralist must have language skills and must be smart enough to give reasonable arguments.

Hanna Azkiya, born in October 10, 1986, has participated in the Jessup competition twice. She once became the best speaker in the maritime pseudo trial n Sydney, Australia, in 2005. Hanna who was a Al-Azhar Senior High School graduate in Kemang, Jakarta, also became the best oralist in the Jessup national round competition in Jakarta at the beginning of this year .

Due to her fabulous achievement, Justice and Human Rights Minister Hamid Awaluddin wanted to meet her and other team members, and would accompany them to meet President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono. This year, UI sent a team of four students to the event. They are Hanna, Fitria Chairani, Harjo Winoto and Hadyu Ikrami. They were accompanied by Tiza Mafira (coach) and Dewi Safitri Reni (assistant coach).

Well, on behalf of Class 2001, I sent you my sincere gratitude and bunch of lovely thanks. Keep up the good work and someday we’ll see how you beat other int’l lawyers in International Forum. So, no more islands can be taken by other countries.

Jaya Indonesia!

All legal scholars are invited to attend and present papers whether they are from an ASLI founding member or from other institutions, and whether they come from within or outside Asia. Contributors are invited to submit papers on any of the tentative panel topics. However, ASLI would especially like to receive papers which are relevant to the conference theme.
