Some of my fondest memories of Indonesia relate to coaching moot court teams. I had the great fortune of working with the students from Universitas Pelita Harapan (Pelita Harapan University / UPH) from 2007 through 2009. The students that I worked with were one of the most dedicated groups that I have had the pleasure of working with. They were not only keen to learn, but they were keen to get better, and they were prepared to put in the hard yards to achieve those goals.
The first time I worked with the UPH students was in preparation for the Asia Cup Law Moot competition that is organised by the Japanese Ministry of Foreign Affairs and is by invitation only. The competition was held in Tokyo. The team worked hard to get to Japan. The effort included a weekend of seclusion / retreat at Kota Bunga (Puncak) that was designed to allow total focus on the task at hand, writing memorials. However, as these photos suggest, there was also time for a little relaxation as well.
My thanks to all the team members and their very dedicated team advisor (Pricilla, James, Johan, Nenda, Sunny, and Levin, and of course Michelle).
