Utlysning for dere som har avlagt JUROFF1410

Dear all,

This notice concerns the Telders International Law Moot Court Competition for 2017, to take place in The Hague on 18-20 May 2017.

The Telders International Law Moot Court Competition has become one of the most prestigious and important moot court competitions in Europe. Annually, teams from over 40 universities compete in the national rounds, with the winning teams going on to represent their countries in the international rounds held at the Peace Palace in The Hague, the Netherlands. Through the Competition students are educated in legal practice and such principles as the rule of law, civil society and fair play. The Competition also stimulates team-work and European integration. Students and academics consider participation important, a great honour and a wonderful experience of a friendly and international competition never to be forgotten.
