  • Have reached the quarter finals of any internal moot, and;

  • Have studied the area of law that the moot is concerned with.

OR

  • Have reached the quarter-finals of the moot they are applying to judge for (e.g. a student who reached the 2017 quarter finals of the Public International Law Moot could judge the 2018 Public International Law Moot, even if he or she has yet to study Public International Law.)

To be eligible to judge a particular skills competition a student must have reached quarter finals of the skills competition they are applying to judge for.
