More details on the 2022 Virtual Asia Regional CLE Mock Pre-Trial Hearing event will be announced soon.

Virtual Asia Regional CLE Mock Pre-Trial Event

The Virtual Asia Regional Mock CLE Pre-Trial Event 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 had the opportunity to experience key aspects of the courtroom trial experience without all the formalities of a traditional mock pre-trial hearing.

Participants had 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. As such, the Virtual Asia Regional CLE Mock Pre-Trial Event structure used for the event does not strictly adhere to any particular legal jurisdiction but has been modelled with the aim of facilitating the development of CLE outcomes in a practical setting.

The students were given access to training materials prior to the training. The maximum number of students for each workshop was 60. 10 students from each country were selected to participate in the Annual Asia Regional CLE Mock Pre-Trial hearing, which was held virtually this year. The National workshop assisted in preparing students, and their coaching mentors in their country, to participate in the Virtual Asia Regional CLE Mock Pre-Trial Event to be held in late November to early December.

  1. Fully attend the 2-day National CLE Mock Trial Virtual Training
  2. Have strong English communication skills
  3. Have a good internet connection
  4. Have access to a computer/laptop
  5. Have a good understanding of the CLE Mock Trial procedure
