Faculty of Law students win the national round of Philip Jessup International Moot Competition

On February 2, 2015, Prof Bernard Martin, the Dean of the Law faculty wrote ‘it is with a tremendous sense of almost paternal pride, that I share with you the news that Team 217, that is our team of Kessler Perumalsamy, Toni Dammert, Raeesa Ebrahim and Hendrik Theron won the South African Regional round of the Philip Jessup International Moot Competition’. Not only did they win all their rounds, but they also won the trophy for the best memorials (written heads of argument). Mr Perumalsamy was the best oralist and Ms Dammert the second best oralist. The bench, consisting of High Court Judges Henney and Salie-Samuels and Mr Mukund Dhar, a partner at the Law firm White and Case, who were the sponsors of the competition, were all in agreement that the UWC team was superb.

The team and their coach, Mr Pieter Koornhof, will be representing South Africa in Washington DC from 5-11 April, 2015.
