International Moot Courts
The Master’s degree program provides active and talented students the opportunity to apply their theoretical knowledge and skills in the realistic and demanding environment of international law competitions. These competitions are comprised of the best law students from around the world who meet as counsels for adversary parties in moot court proceedings. Students thus have a unique opportunity to compare themselves with colleagues from around the globe and present their legal arguments in front of an international panel of distinguished legal practitioners acting as presiding judges.
