General description

Law students interested in moot court competitions and EU law, attention!

The European Law Moot Court, or ELMC, is an EU law moot court competition, attended by the most prestigious law schools in Europe and the US. Obviously, any such occasion requires our faculty's participation as well. Soon it is time to gather the team of the University of Turku and begin the journey to Luxembourg!

The ELMC cases deal with the current substantive and procedural issues of European Union law. Substantially they can range from fundamental rights to internal market issues. The competition will begin in the autumn semester with the drafting of the legal memoranda. Depending on the success in the written phase, the team will proceed to present its arguments in the Regional Final taking place somewhere in Europe or in the US. Depending on the results of the Regional Final, the team will finally proceed to the Grand Final which is held in front of the judges of the Court of Justice of the European Union in Luxembourg. The competition follows the structure of the preliminary ruling procedure of the ECJ and it will be held in English and/or French.

During the competition the team members have a unique chance to develop their written and oral argumentation skills, meet engaged and motivated students from other countries, as well as judges coming from academic, EU civil service and law firm backgrounds.

While the race is no walkover, the study credits will be granted graciously. The written phase will be recognized as 12 ECTS credits and as a specialization course of the Public Law pool. The oral phase will be recognized as an elective course. The cost of the competition will be covered by scholarships and faculty resources.

The team members will be decided on the basis of informal tryouts on 9thSeptember. Potentially interested students should send an email signaling their plans to attend the tryouts before 5thSeptember to the contact personnel below. The ELMC case of this year should be available at http://www.europeanlawmootcourt.eu/Case on 1st September. The candidates should prepare a 5-minute oral presentation about Question 1 of the case (from the perspective of the Defendant) and be ready to answer questions based on it.

The eventual team members will be coached by students who have participated in the competition in previous years.
