European Law Moot Court Competition (ELMC)


Master students registered at the Faculty of Law and/or undertaking the Certificate in Transnational Law (CTL) have the possibility to represent the University of Geneva at the European Law Moot Court competition.

The European Law Moot court is a bilingual competition (English/French) in European Union law comprising teams from all over Europe and from the United States.

The competition has three rounds (September to April). During the first round, each team has to submit two written pleadings, one for the applicant and the other one for the defendant (September-November). During the second round, the selected teams will plead in one of the regional finals which will take place in 4 different countries (February). 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).

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 required.

The team of the University of Geneva is able to participate in the European Law Moot Court competition thanks to the generous support of the Faculty of Law of the University of Geneva and of Schellenberg Wittmer
