ELSA European Human Rights Moot Court Competition
Full course description
The ELSA human rights moot court competition provides an opportunity for students to experience the practical application and implementation of the European Convention on Human Rights. The competition involves written submissions by all teams and a Final Oral Round at the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR) in Strasbourg, where the best 20 teams from all over Europe compete. The moot court presents a unique opportunity for students to plead before the ECtHR, to engage in networking with other participants and Judges, and to win a traineeship at the ECtHR. For more information, please see https://ehrmcc.elsa.org/
The best 20 teams are selected on the basis of the written submissions. However, National and Local Groups of ELSA organise the EHRMCC pre-rounds, which participants may join to practice their pleadings and receive feedback. The participation in the pre-rounds is optional and does not influence the selection for the Final Oral Round. The competition is held entirely in English.
