European Law Moot Court Competition (ELMC)

European Law Moot Court Competition
Edition 2018/2019



Master students registered at the Faculty of Law have the possibility to represent the University of Geneva at the European Law Moot Court competition which will start in September 2018.

This competition has three rounds (September 2018 to April 2019). During the first round, each team has to submit two written pleadings, one for the applicant and the other one for the defendant (November 2018). During the second round, the selected teams will plead in one of the regional finals which will take place in 4 different countries (February 2019). During the third round, the winners of each one of the regional finals will plead in the Court of Justice of the European Union, in Luxembourg (April 2019).

This activity combines the submission of written pleadings and the opportunity to plead in front of qualified lawyers, judges and very prestigious Professors from all over Europe. It therefore offers a unique experience that will undoubtedly contribute to your professional career. From an administrative point of view, the European Law Moot Court is considered as a seminar and consists of 18 ECTS. This competition is bilingual (French/English) so the ability to use both languages is a requirement.
