Any university from an ASEAN member state may participate in the SEARR. A university from an ASEAN member state cannot advance to the International Finals without participating in the SEARR.
Number of Teams
A university may register up to two (2) teams. However, if a university will send two teams, one team must submit an Applicant memorial while the other team must submit a Respondent memorial. A university sending only one team can choose either an Applicant or Respondent memorial.
A team consists of two or three persons, each of whom satisfies the criteria listed below. But as allowed by the IEMCC Rules, the SEARR is permitting up to five (5) team members. But if a team advances to the International Finals, the team will be restricted to no more than three team members. Every team member must be a student of the school represented.
Team Member Criteria
No team member may hold a law degree.
Each team member must be enrolled in a full-time or part-time Juris Doctor or equivalent program in the law school they represent.
