Moot Court course for Honours College students

14 May 2018

On May 1st, LLB students who participate in the University of Groningen Honours College programme completed a moot court course organized by staff from the International Law Dept. Having prepared for 3 months, the 14 students (divided into two separate teams) submitted memorials and argued in oral pleadings on the fictional case of Mr Alauoui v. The Kingdom of the Netherlands before the European Court of Human Rights.

The case concerned alleged violations of the right of liberty and security of person, the right to association and assembly, and the right to be free from discrimination under the European Convention on Human Rights in the context of a state of emergency following a terrorist attack.

Prof Marcel Brus, Marlies Hesselman and Andre de Hoogh served as judges on the court's bench. Mando Rachovitsa and Katerina Tsampi supervised the work of the students.
