The Role of the Evaluator
Evaluators become part of the International Panel of Evaluation (IPE). They are tasked with grading three (3) memorials (written pleadings) remotely between 1 April and 1 May. To aid in grading the memorials, the evaluators receive: (i) the case; (ii) grading guide; (iii) Bench Memo; and (iv) scoresheets. All exchanges will be made via email; therefore the memorials can be graded from anywhere in the world. The IPE is composed of qualified persons nominated by teams (each team must nominate two IPE members) and of persons directly invited to act as evaluators by the Organization and its partners.
The Role of the Judge
Judges serve as members of a panel during the Oral Round of the Competition. Most panels have three judges. During the 2-hour session, judges assess the validity of the participants’ arguments, the persuasiveness of their presentation, their poise and advocacy skills, and the thoroughness of their preparation. The Organization shall invite duly qualified persons to act as members of the Judging panels during the Preliminary, Quarter-final and Semi-final Rounds.
Duly qualified persons include, but are not limited to lawyers, academics in a field of law, legal advisors, legal officers, court personnel. The Organization will determine the eligibility of persons to serve as evaluators and judges in the Competition.
A person may act as a judge or an evaluator if he/she holds at least a Master’s degree in law in any jurisdiction, or a Master’s degree in an international law-related field. Experience in the practice of law is accepted in lieu of a Master’s degree. Experience or academic background in international (criminal) law is highly desirable.
