In the moot court ofa case of disputes over sales contracts between Zhang Huan and Shengyuan World Watch Center, our contestants showed their great abilities in logical thinking, court defending and controlling of court procedures. The two parties for plaintiff and defendant respectively had hot debates on “whether the plaintiff is qualified” and “whether this case constitutes fraud”.

After competitions, contestants from our university entered the semi-finals and finally gained Honor of Top Six Group. Mu Yiming was awarded Honor of Best Contestant for his excellent performance.

The great honors that the contestants got showed their elegant demeanors of meeting challenges and fine style of study: honesty, hardworking and the unity of knowing and doing.
