LL.M. Programmes

Our Partner : Clifford Chance




The Faculty of Law, Economics and Finance’s moot court activities are supported by the Luxembourg branch of the multinational law firm Clifford Chance. A generous annual contribution allows our participating students to travel to the competition locations, taking them across Europe and as far afield as Washington, D.C.

In addition, lawyers from Clifford Chance attend practice sessions for selected competitions, giving students feedback on their pleadings and rhetorical skills, allowing students to benefit from their professional experience.

Moot court participants have gone on to successfully complete internships at Clifford Chance while members of Clifford Chance’s team have taught in our law study programmes, adding further to the partnership.
