Asia Cup Moot

The Asia Cup Moot, or Asia Cup in short, is an annual international moot court competition that is open to law schools in Asia. The competition inaugurated in 1999 and is held in Tokyo, Japan. It is jointly organised by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Japan and the International Law Students Exchange Council, and the moot problem typically contains issues pertaining to public international law, international humanitarian law, and international human rights.[1][2][3][4][5] The top-ten scoring teams for the memorials qualify for the international rounds in Tokyo, but generally each country is only permitted to send one team.[6] Each team may feature up to four oralists. As of 2015, 40 different law schools have competed in Tokyo since the moot's inception.

For some schools, the moot (as is the Red Cross International Humanitarian Law Moot in Hong Kong) is seen as a rite of passage for Asian mooters before they go on to participate in the larger international moots, such as the Jessup Moot and Vis Moot.

Ateneo Law School is the most successful school winning five (5) championships overall, having participated since the inaugural tournament in 1999. The Philippines, with nine wins, is the winningest country, followed by Singapore with seven. Since making its debut in 2010, Singapore Management University has dominated the moot, reaching the international finals six years in a row—winning three—and having 12 of its oralists ranked in the top 5 for Best Oralist.
