International moot court competitions

Telders International Law Moot Court Competition 2014

Participation in “moot court” competitions has recently belonged to the most frequent and profesionally most beneficial extracurricular activities of the Faculty of Law students. The competitions generally follow the basic two-round model. In the first round, the student teams research a particular case and submit written memorials. This is followed by the second round where the teams compete and participate in oral argumentation. Moot courts provide students with a unique opportunity to try out practical and argumentation skills and utilize the acquired knowledge and team work in prestigious background of prominent juristic institutions or foreign universities. The most traditional themes of the regional and international moot courts are taken from the fields of public international law, international humanitarian law, human rights and international business arbitration.

The Faculty of Law of Masaryk University has been recording a growing interest of its students in active participation in moot court teams year by year. The Faculty of Law students have a long history of successful participation in moot courts worldwide., e.g. Philips C. Jessup International Law Moot Court Competition and Regional IHL Moot Court Competition, where the Faculty of Law students traditionally gain the best rated positions. Their very recent success has been in the Willem C. Vis International Commercial Arbitration Moot.
