Mhkokeli Pino (2008) and Deputy Chairman of the KHSOBU has introduced Moot Court at Kimberley Boys' High School. Moot court is an activity in which participants take part in simulated court or arbitration proceedings, usually involving drafting memorials or memoranda and participating in oral argument.
In the pilot session yesterday, supported by the Headmaster, Mr. X Taba, the SGB Chairman, Mr. Mafaro and Head of Languages, Ms. Ramathinyane, Mr. Pino dealt with the broad overview of Moot court and its role and significance. Learners who will participate have received material to prepare for their first "court session". The boys have their work set out for them as Mr. Pino intends to invite prominent lawmen to preside over the moot court later this year.
Mr. Pino, founder of Mkhokeli Pino Inc. explained that law is dynamic and affects almost every aspect of our lives. The earlier the young generation is trained and developed on various vocations, the greater the possibility of improving the quality of learners that are propelled into higher institutions of learning.
He explained that Moot court is not only beneficial to those with ambitions of pursuing a career in law, but it generally improves the learners' analytical, drafting, and oratory skills which will be useful in other professions and later in life. Over and above that, it also encourages active citizenry and promotes constitutionalism and the rule of law.
" Will the people in the well of the courtroom please stand!"
From GOOD to GREAT
