The Virtual Asia Regional CLE Mock Pre-Trial Hearing Workshop
is a practical learning experience in which participants simulate a case involving a Pre-Trial hearing to exclude evidence in an upcoming trial that is not focused on the law of a particular country.
Participants will have the opportunity to practice legal, analytical, and advocacy skills in a simulated courtroom, while also experiencing courtroom procedure first-hand process and gaining an appreciation, fair trial, rule of law, and legal ethics’ importance in the practice of law. The focus of the Virtual Asia Regional CLE Mock Pre-Trial Event is the development of these outcomes.
The CLE Mock Pre-Trial Hearing is a collaborative learning exercise with subject matter that focuses
on relevant legal issues and social justice outcomes, not a competition with winners and losers. It is an
abbreviated form of the Standard/Traditional Mock Pre-Trial in which participants will have the
opportunity to experience key aspects of the courtroom trial experience without all the formalities of
a traditional mock pre-trial hearing.
Summer School/Academy on Refugee Protection in South and Southeast Asia
This year, 2021, marks the 70th anniversary of the adoption of the 1951 Refugee Convention. The Refugee Convention continues to be the primary international legal document assisting persons fleeing persecution in their home country. In spite of this international legal anchorage, international refugee law continues to be predominantly embedded within domestic legal orders – and in no place is this more apparent than in South and Southeast Asia. Home to one of the largest populations of refugees, very few states across the region have prepared to become parties to the Refugee Convention or its Protocol. Instead, they have opted to provide protection through a wide range of national laws, policies, judicial decisions, ad hoc measures, and localized practices in order to honor and secure the rights of refugees in their respective territories.
