We are delighted to bring to your attention the International Criminal Court (ICC) Moot
Court Competition, which is set to take pace in The Hague, the Netherlands
in May 2015.
The establishment of the world’s first International
Criminal Court provided a fantastic opportunity to further support the rule of
international law and the fight against impunity, by garnering a youth-led
interest. For this reason, the Grotius
Centre for International Legal Studies – Leiden University organizes the
ICC Moot Court Competition, a large scale moot court simulating the proceedings
of the ICC.
The Competition consists of a six-day educational and
social program, which brings together students of diverse backgrounds and
cultures to The Hague. The final round of the Competition is expected to take
place in an actual ICC courtroom, with ICC judges adjudicating. More
information about the ICC Moot Court Competition can be found in our Information
Booklet or on our website.
This year the Competition attracted 47 teams from 34
countries and six continents worldwide, so make sure your university will be a
participant in the 2015 edition!
Registration for the Competition opens on 22 September
2014 and closes on 24 October 2014. More information on the registration
procedure can be found here.
