UCLan Cyprus is pleased to announce the completion of its Moot Court Room. We are the first higher education institution in Cyprus to build its own Court Room. Its design not only reproduces the look and effect of a real court room, but represents court rooms of the future.
In January 2013, UCLan Cyprus won Europe’s top audio visual innovation award of ‘Most InAVative Education Facility’. The Moot Court Room is representative of UCLan Cyprus’ commitment to providing its students with the most technologically advanced learning experience in the eastern Mediterranean. Fully IT and AV-equipped, with both counsel and judge able to portray their evidence, representations and remarks onto three large projector screens, the Moot Court Room will enable UCLan Cyprus’ Law students to develop and practice their skills in advocacy in conditions as close to reality as possible.
Mooting, debating and practise form a highly important component in the legal education offered at UCLan Cyprus. A range of modules, both compulsory and optional, currently exist on the LLB (Bachelor of Laws) course to help students acquire skills in interviewing and advising, negotiation and arguing. An entire module is devoted to Mooting and Legal Debating in the third year of study, as well as the opportunity to take the Law Clinic option in the final year. Beyond this, Law students at UCLan Cyprus, supported by staff and the (student) Law Society, at the extra- curricular level, engage extensively in mooting and debating in order to field teams in a range of international competitions.
