Joel Eugene Elifala, Judge in University of Malawi Student Association Court was also one of the representatives of the team that emerged the winners.
A moot court is a competition in which participants take part in simulated court proceedings usually involving drafting memorials and participating in oral arguments before a court on a hypothetical question of law.
The moot is the first of its kind following the accreditation of CUNIMA to offer legal education.
