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 a moot court competition during their studies. Moot courts are an excellent way to apply the knowledge acquired in the classroom and practice the necessary skills to become a great lawyer. By taking a fictitious case, analysing the pertaining issues and defending a fictitious party before international experts, our students gain experience that will serve them throughout their career.

Participants take part in simulated court proceedings, draft briefs (or memorials) and participate in oral pleadings. Students receive training during the academic year which allows them not only to deepen their knowledge in the respective field of law but also to develop transferable and social skills, such as working in a team and improving both their legal drafting and rhetorical skills. The Faculty of Law, Economics and Finance puts a strong emphasis on the moot court experience and in the past years our teams have achieved remarkable results.

Teams are coached by junior researchers (doctoral candidates and post-doctoral researchers). Each team is also assigned a supervising professor. Overall activities are coordinated by Associate Prof. Aikaterini Pantazatou. Our moot court activities are carried out with the support of Clifford Chance Luxembourg.
