Congratulations to ECU Senior Lecturer in Law, Michael Crowley, who was part of the judging panel for the final round of the 8th Red Cross International Humanitarian Law (IHL) Moot Competition in Hong Kong.
Held on 5 and 6 March 2010, the IHL Moot is the premier inter-university humanitarian law mooting competition for the Asia-Pacific Region, represented by national winners of the participating countries.
Michael was invited to judge the final round, joining a list of renowned academics and legal professionals.
“The aim of the competition is to promote IHL in the region by providing an opportunity for law students to argue a hypothetical case before a moot court modelled on the International Criminal Court.
“The competition also fosters important academic, professional and cultural links between students, academics and legal professionals working in this important area of the law”, said Michael.
“This is the fourth time I have been involved with the competition. I am a great supporter of the Red Cross and have a strong interest in humanitarian law issues”.
The IHL Moot Competition is an annual event co-organised by the Hong Kong Red Cross and the International Committee of the Red Cross in collaboration with the Faculty of Law of The University of Hong Kong, the School of Law of City University of Hong Kong and the Faculty of Law of The Chinese University of Hong Kong.
