Congratulations to our LLB Law Students, Lana Elakkad, Ekaterina Tretiak, Rifdi Abqary, Dillon Nazareth, and Renad Alzahri, who represented Middlesex University Dubai at the UAE Qualifying Rounds of the Philip C. Jessup International Law Moot Court Competition on Saturday 25 January 2020.
Huge congratulations to Lana Elakkad who, after giving an exceptional performance, was awarded ‘Best Oralist’ of all the participants.
The students were selected from among the MDX Dubai Mooting Society members due to their advanced skills in legal research, writing and advocacy. They have worked tirelessly for many months to prepare for the competition and their hard work and dedication was evident in their expertly delivered submissions and responses to tough questioning from the panel of distinguished judges.
We are extremely grateful to our coach, Ivan Korotkov, who guided the team throughout, as well as to Dr Cedwyn Fernandes for always supporting our students in these competitions.
