Legal Competitions

Two useful and practical educational experiences that PUC Law students can participate are Mock Trial Competition and Client Counseling. The competitions are organized at university level, national level, and international level.

In Mock Trial Competition, students perform as prosecutors, defense attorneys, and witnesses. Mock Trial Competition is a unique opportunity for Cambodian law students to learn about case strategy, logic, argumentation, examination and other important legal skills via a hypothetical case.

In Client Counseling Competition, participating teams counsel an actor posing as a client in a simulated law office environment. The students learned to employ important practical legal skills such as active listening, interviewing, empathy, issue spotting, legal analysis, problem solving and teamwork.
