The Law Association of Mooting and Advocacy hosted its official opening in partnership with the University of Namibia Law Students Council (ULSC) on 4 May 2021. They hosted a Moot Court session under the theme ‘Executing the true form of international justice within the Namibian sphere’.

The Law Association of Mooting and Advocacy is an association for law students which aspires to create a platform within which law students may gain exposure to legal practice by providing first-hand practical insight into mooting, developing oratory and written skills and providing a forum for passionate debate.

The Law Association of Mooting and Advocacy aims to provide law students from the University of Namibia with a valuable opportunity to hone both their written and oral advocacy skills in this competitive field. This will help in the overall development of students as good and proficient lawyers, who are familiar with the art of being effective legal practitioners in a real courtroom.

This process will prepare them for professional, real-life trial advocacy, as the aspiration is to develop efficient legal practitioners, who have the skill set required to spearhead social development and bring change in society through qualitative advocacy.

L.A.M.A was born from the moot court competition which took place in 2019 which was hosted by Unam. This competition enabled a team to moot in an international competition that took place in South Africa.

The team who took part in the international competition shared the fruits they reaped whilst at the competition. The association was established last year where a few students were trained, however, they could not continue due to the pandemic but revived it back this year.

“It is up to us as students to ensure that we empower ourselves and fill up the gaps that are within the faculty,” Naboth De Celestino, a third-year student said.

Amongst the session were the judges namely: Karel Gaeb, Andi Jamellee Janke and Eugene Libebe. Gaeb is an admitted legal practitioner at the High Court of Namibia and practices at Sisa Namandje & Company Incorporated. Janke holds a Bachelor of Law Honours Degree (LLB) and became a legal practitioner of the High Court of Namibia. Judge Libebe is a former law student of Unam and a lecturer as well.
