Audio visual equipment
The Court is equipped with built-in audio-visual recording and playback facilities. Student presentation may be filmed, allowing students to later watch and assess their performances. The Court houses ISDN-based video-conferencing equipment, which enables guest speakers to be visually present in the room from any venue, local or abroad. Classes may be fully interactive, with full communication being possible between those appearing on the screen and those in the Court room. The equipment allows UCT mootists to compete with others in any part of the world where similar video-conferencing facilities are available. The audio-visual equipment brings the proceedings of The Oliver Tambo Moot Court, a court in and for Africa, to the world.
The moot court proceedings, either local or via video-conference, can be fed to a larger lecture theatre in the Faculty should the audience outgrow the courtroom.
All equipment is designed to cater for the needs of both the University and members of the legal profession who are invited to make use of the Court for arbitration, mediation or even specialist court hearings. Bringing dispute resolution into the Law Faculty better serves both the profession and the Law Faculty's teaching.
