The Moot Parliament Programme (MPP) is a year-long programme conducted in partnership with MOE. It aims to educate Secondary 3 students about the legislative process in Singapore, and how legislation can address important issues such as access to justice and the environment. The programme comprises a series of workshops, seminars, and learning journeys and culminates in each team submitting a fully-fledged bill of Parliament. Selected teams will participate in a moot Parliamentary debate.
By joining MPP, you can gain a deeper understanding of the intricacies of legislation and policymaking in Singapore. You will also interact with specialists in legislation drafting, officers from the Attorney-General’s Chambers and lawyers in private practice. In the process, you will also have the opportunity to mentor and connect with secondary school students and learn how to better impart legal, technical, or other difficult information in a digestible manner to lay-people.
Student-mentors will undergo training workshops organised by MOE for certain components of the programme (e.g. a bill-writing workshop will be conducted for student-mentors before they are assigned to their groups). If mentors are expected to conduct training sessions (e.g. parliamentary debate workshops), MOE will provide them with an overview of the programme alongside relevant materials (e.g. sample executive summary) and feedback from previous years.
