I was away in Jinan, the capital of Shandong Province last week judging the 9th China Jessup Moot Court Competition. Jessup is a well-known international moot court competition on international law whereby teams from law schools all over the world compete in Washington D.C. in April every year. China had been holding Jessup for the past eight years and is now gaining momentum. This year a total of 49 teams took part and the competition is held in the campus of Shandong University.

上个星期,我有幸赴山东省省会济南参加了第九届杰赛普杯国际法模拟法庭中国选拔赛。杰赛普杯是一项享誉国际的国际法领域的模拟法庭大赛。每年4月,来自世界各国的法学院的代表队都齐聚华盛顿来参加比赛。中国在过去8年都举办了杰赛普杯的选拔赛,这项赛事在中国乘迅速发展的势头。今年,中国的49支代表队参加了选拔赛,选拔赛在山东大学校园内举行。

With a large German Cathedral and also other buildings of European architectures the campus ground look like a scene from an European or a Ivy League University.

校园内的高耸的德国大教堂和其它欧式风格建筑,使整个校园看上去好像是欧洲或者美国常青藤联盟的大学校园。

I was one of the judges. There are almost 30 judges the majority foreigners and some Chinese ones too. The foreign judges came from USA, Russia, UK, France, Germany, Nigeria, Costa Rica and Singapore. Some are academics and others like myself are practicing lawyers. I am the only judge from an Asian jurisdiction.

我有幸作为这次比赛的评判。评判总共将近30人,大部分是外国人,还有一些中国评判。这些外国评判分别来自美国、俄罗斯、英国、法国、德国、尼日利亚、哥斯达黎加和新加坡。他们中的有些人是学者,还有一些像我一样是专业律师。在这些外国律师中,我也是唯一一个来自亚洲司法管辖区域的评判。

Though there were many judges but due to the number of participating teams the judges had to work very hard: judging up to 4 rounds daily. We could only manage a quick round of sandwich in the judges'robbing room each day during lunch but the interaction between lawyers and judges from so many jurisdictions was exciting.

尽管评判的人数可谓是众多,但由于数目庞大的参赛队伍,评判的工作并不轻松,我们每天最多要为四轮比赛做评判。有时,我们只能在评判的更衣间利用午餐休息时间,很快的吃些三明治来填饱肚子。但是来自不同司法管辖区的律师和法官之间的交流和互动却是令人兴奋的。

But what impressed me most of the standard of the participating teams. Though they are all hailed from the most prestigious universities one must keep in mind that English is their second language and curriculum time spent on it is minimal. Further their legal education is based on civil law system and the doctrine of binding precedent and citing authorities which is the fundamental of the moots are alien to them. Finally Chinese education system does not question debating and questioning. Given the aforesaid factors the standard of English of advocacy amongst them is surely very impressive. It is like seeing a basket team from a school without a basketball court to conduct practice slam-dunking with ease during a basketball match. It is very encouraging to see a new elite of legal professional in the making.

那么,这些参赛队给我留下的最深刻的印象是什么呢?尽管他们都在自中国最有声望的大学,我们仍需记得,英语是他们的第二语言,他们并没有把学业的大部分时间花在英语上。而且,他们的法学教育是基于大陆法体系,而模拟法庭最基本的原则却是遵循判例以及援引先前的判例判决(英美法系的重要特色),这并不是他们所熟悉的法律体系。最后中国的教育体制并不是以辩论和质疑见长的。尽管存在以上几点因素,他们使用英文进行辩护和辩论的水准却相当令人叹服。这就好比一支来自某学校的篮球队,尽管这个学校并没有篮球场这样的基础设施(供他们训练时使用),而这支球队在比赛中还是毫不费力便展示了灌蓝这样的精彩表现。看到一支新的法律专业的精英队伍正在形成,心中真是倍感欣慰。

Judging to the moots was really a rewarding and intellectually stimulating experience. It also brings me back to the days of my freshmen and reminded me once again why I practice law. I wish the five Chinese teams which is representing China in Washington D.C. next month good performance!

作为评判出席这次中国选拔赛真是一个富有收获的激励人心的经历。它不仅带我回到了我的大学时光,而且还让我又一次记起当初选择律师行业的缘起。我祝愿获胜的5支中国队伍能够代表中国,在下个月的华盛顿再创佳绩!
