The Faculty of Law of the University of Geneva offers Master’s students and students registered for the Certificate of Transnational Law (CTL) the opportunity to be part of the University of Geneva’s team participating to the European Law Moot Court Competition’s 2022-2023 edition. The competition will start in September 2022.

The competition consists of three phases (from September 2022 to April 2023). During the first phase, team shall submit two written pleadings, one on behalf of the applicant and the other one on behalf of the defendant (November 2022). The teams selected on the basis of the written pleadings will then be called to plead in one of the regional finals, held in four different European cities (February 2023). The winners of each regional final will be invited to plead before the Court of Justice of the European Union in Luxembourg for the all-European final (April 2023).

The European Law Moot Court, which combines a written and an oral exercise, is, undoubtedly, a unique experience to apply the knowledge acquired during your studies and to have a hands-on experience regarding the legal profession. Master’s students will obtain 18 ECTS for their participation to the European Law Moot Court, while CTL students 12 ECTS. The competition is bilingual in French and English, therefore, a good knowledge of both languages is required.
