The aim of this course is to prepare for the moot court competitions, mainly - TELDERS moot court competition or Jessup moot court competition, which are both the world's largest and most prestigious competitions. By working on a case-study, students should enhance not only their doctrinal knowledge, but also issue-spotting and analytical ability: skills necessary for all capable and thoughtful lawyers. This course will seek to explore the nexus between law and facts, theory and practice.
Working on a case study depending on the topic for each year.
