Second place in regional finals European Law Moot Court

The Maastricht team, consisting of Julie Dorval, David Gruber, Claire De Neve and Francesca Rinaudo, obtained a well-deserved second place in the regional finals of the European Law Moot Court competition. Besides their strong pleading and legal reasoning skills, their coaches underline the devotion and resilience which each member of the Team showed during both the preparation and the competition.


The ELMC competition took place from 5-8 March and was hosted by Ghent University. The case concerned animal rights and religious practices, the new summer and winter time regime and the possibility for EU Member States to unilaterally treat a third state, that has recently left the EU, as an EU Member State for tax purposes.
