An administrative moot court was held at YSU Faculty of Law. This time it was decided to organize an administrative hearing, because up to now, more attention was paid to the criminal trial. But taking into account the fact that the role of administrative justice is gradually growing in the area of human rights protection, we chose this topic for the Moot Court, - said YSU Faculty of Law SSS Chairman Gohar Hakobyan.
Up now, the moot courts, organized the faculty have been only in joint cooperation with Russian-Armenian (Slavonic) and French university students. The trial was conducted not by the students, but the RA Administrative Court judge Ruzanna Hakobyan. She had been invited to exclude the prejudiced attitude towards the parties.
YSU students were the claimants and Slavonic University students-respondents. This time the moot court had a competitive character, too, because at the end the judge had to select the best speakers of two teams.
The moot court was real and was taken from the administrative court proceedings. Only the organization and participant names were changed. Accordingly, the Hrazdan Energy Company had set a claim against the State Revenue Committee. The participants were not familiar with the details of the case and had developed independently the arguments and contra facts.
After all, having heard and studied the arguments brought by the parties, the court decided to satisfy the claim in full. The best speakers were recognized Tigran Naghdalyan (Yerevan State University) and Areg Malkhasyan (RASU). All participants received certificates.
Students today had prepared well and possess such knowledge, which are reached in practice. I think we will have very good lawyers in future. Even some acting lawyers do not feel so confident in the court, as these students do, - shared her after impressions the judge after the hearing.
