Moot courts and legal clinics

Moot courts
Student teams of the Maastricht law faculty keep scoring high at international pleading competitions, so-called moot court competitions. During such moot courts, teams would work intensively on a hypothetical court case, prepare written submissions, and finally plead on behalf of their parties against other universities in front of benches of judges or law professors.

Legal clinics
Bringing reality in the classroom enhances student employability. We established two clinical education programmes that offer live-client or other real-life practice, reaching out to NGOs who need help in problem-solving and community-building.
