General description

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

European Law Moot Court, or ELMC, is an EU law moot competition, attended by the most prestigious law schools in Europe and the USA. Obviously, any such occasion requires our faculty's participation. Soon it is time to gather the University of Turku 2015-2016 ELMC team and begin the journey to Luxembourg!

The ELMC cases deal with the current substantive and procedural issues of the European Union law. Substantially they can range from regulation of fundamental rights to internal market issues. The competition will begin in the autumn with the drafting of legal memos. Depending on the success in the written phase, the Turku team will proceed to present its arguments in front of the judges in the Regional Final, taking place somewhere in Europe or in the US. In the end, the Grand Final takes place in front of the EU Court of Justice judges in Luxembourg. The competition follows the structure of the EU Court of Justice procedure for a preliminary ruling, and will be held in English and/or French language.

During the competition 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 that come 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 a specialization course from 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. More information can be found in the study guide.

The team members will be decided on the basis of informal tryouts on 9th September. Potentially interested students should send an email/informal motivation letter signaling their plans to attend the tryouts before September 5th to the contact personnel below. The 2015-2016 ELMC case should be available at http://www.europeanlawmootcourt.eu/Case on 1st September. The candidates should prepare a 5-minute oral presentation about Question 1 (from the Defendant's perspective) of the 2015/2016 case and be ready to answer questions on the basis of it.

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