International moot courts
Participation in a moot court competition became an established part of the extracurricular activities offered to students by the international law department. Our academic staff provides extensive coaching for the written and oral phases of various moot courts such as the Telders Competition on public international law, the ICC Moot on international criminal law, the Jean-Pictet Competition on international humanitarian law or the ELSA Human Rights Moot Court. Taking the law out of the books and offering students the invaluable experience of defending their legal arguments in front of a panel of judges fits well with our mission to further our students’ understanding of international law. We aim to foster the curiosity of our students and their engagement with international law outside the classroom by supporting them to the best of our abilities. Which particular moot court(s) our students participate in varies from year to year and depends to a large share on their interests.
Students who are interested in participating in a moot court competition will be invited to submit an application in the beginning of the academic year. Generally we ensure to make announcements to that effect in the relevant courses.
