The Team is made up of four students: Aneezia (Year 4), Cheng Chun Him, Chris (Year 2) and Chen Jinyu, Bella (Year 2), and the researcher, Rai Sumi (Year 3). After four preliminary rounds competing against teams from Malaysia, Japan and Singapore, the Team advanced to the semi-finals. All four teams in the semi-finals were top quality contenders. They focused on making every effort to enter into the finals. During the semi-finals, the Team continued to perform well despite being up against one of the toughest moot teams from Singapore. Ultimately, although the Team missed out on a place in the finals, it won the opponents’ respect. Moreover, Aneezia also won the third best mooter award.
