Of the over 100 speakers participating at this year’s Telders International Law Moot Court Competition in The Hague, University of Groningen LLM student Allan Mukuki was awarded the honour of Runner-Up Best Oralist, being only beaten by a mere 0.06 by the top speaker. Mukuki, originally from Kenya, is currently studying in the LLM programme in Public International Law here in Groningen.
Regarding his recognition, he notes, “A few years ago, all I could dream was coming back into the ICJ, not as a tourist as I did in 2012, but as something more. Well, in 2016, what was just a dream in 2012 was now a reality in the hallowed halls of international justice in 2016.”
The other members of the University of Groningen team participating at the Telders also performed exceptionally, with both placing among the top 25 oralists; Mirjam Mulderij (LLM International & European Law) placed 15th and Nika Melkadze (LLM Public International Law) placing 23rd.
The Telders competition was held from May 18th – 21st at the International Court of Justice in The Hague, with 27 teams from 24 countries competing to win the most prestigious and important moot court competition in Europe. The University of Groningen team placed 6th overall.
