Congratulations to NUS Law students for their excellent performance in the inaugural Gowling WLG IP Moot!

The inaugural Gowling WLG IP Moot 2017 organised by the NUS Law Mooting and Debating Club (MDC) was held on 24 February 2017. The competition was sponsored by Gowling WLG and the Intellectual Property Office of Singapore (IPOS).

Students from NUS Law made up 7 of 8 finalists in Singapore’s first domestic IP Moot competition, which saw 50 students from NUS and SMU contesting for a chance to moot in front of an esteemed panel of judges in the final round.

Students from NUS Law brought their A-game to the final round and won the following awards:

- Nigel Na '18 emerged as Champion
- Ryo Yap '19 and Tan Ming Ren '20 emerged as joint second runner-up

NUS Law students who also competed at the finals were Uma Sharma '19, Seah Ern Xu '19, Meaghan Lim '17, and Joshua Phang '19.

The organiser and sponsors seek to encourage law students in Singapore to engage actively in moots to advance and refine their skills in oral advocacy. Additionally, the competition aims to promote interest and awareness in Intellectual Property and the practice of IP in Singapore.
