Moot Court Competition

 

“It is one thing to know the law, another to speak it.”

The Faculty of Law, Economics and Finance invites all Master students to participate in this year’s Moot Court competitions. They are an excellent way to apply the knowledge attained in the classroom with the skills necessary to become a great lawyer. By taking a fictitious fact pattern, analyzing the issues involved and defending an opinion in front of international experts, you gain experience which will serve you well throughout your career. Participants take part in simulated court proceedings, drafting briefs (or memorials) and participating in oral argument. No prior specific knowledge in the related field of law is necessary (although it is helpful to have a background in the general topic of the Moot), as training in the field will occur during the academic year.

The Faculty puts a strong emphasis on the Moot Court experience and in the past years our teams in the international competitions against students from Universities all over the world have achieved remarkable results. We encourage the students of all Master programs to participate in these Moot competitions. Participation in those competitions forms an essential part of the legal education and participation is credited by compensation of other courses on agreement with the responsible course director.

Attending an international competition is a great opportunity to develop not only deepened knowledge in the respective field of law, but also the skills needed in an occupational career such as personal and rhetorical skills and, in particular, team work abilities. The participation in a Moot Court competition is thus highly appreciated in professional environments and strongly recommended for the legal career.

Moots are highly time-consuming and require intensive work. However, the commitment will pay off by a unique experience to be gained during the competition as previous success of uni.lu-teams has shown.
