European Law Moot Court Competition (ELMC)

European Law Moot Court Competition
Edition 2024/2025



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 2024-2025 edition.

The European Law Moot Court is a bilingual (French/English) competition in European Union law in which teams from different universities participate.

The competition consists of three phases (from September 2024 to April 2025). Each team, composed of three or four people, will submit two written briefs, one for the plaintiff and one for the defendant (November 2024). The selected teams will go on to the regional finals, which will be held in four European cities (February-March 2025). The winners of each regional final will take part in the Grand Final, which will be held in Luxembourg before members of the Court of Justice of the European Union (April 2025).

Participation in this competition allows students to put into practice the knowledge they have acquired in European Union law by giving them the opportunity to write briefs and present their arguments in oral argument. For Master's students at the University of Geneva, participation takes the place of a seminar and is credited with 18 ECTS credits. For CDT students, participation in the Moot Court is credited with 12 ECTS credits. As the competition is bilingual (French/English), a good knowledge of both languages is required.
