Now in its 14th year, the ICC Moot Court Competition (ICCMCC) welcomes universities from all over the world for a large scale moot court simulating the proceedings of the International Criminal Court.
The Competition consists of an extensive six-day educational and social program, which brings together students of diverse backgrounds and cultures to The Hague to challenge their skills as future international lawyers.
The teams that will qualify for the Final Round of the Competition will have the chance to plead at the International Criminal Court. During the preliminary oral rounds, quarter-finals and semi-finals, judges and legal officers from international courts and tribunals, professors of international (criminal) law, and other legal professionals will act as judges and assess each team’ s pleadings.
This year’s ICC Moot Court Problem focuses on the crime of aggression in the context of humanitarian intervention, the responsibility of a lawyer for providing government authorities one-sided legal advice, and suppression of evidence gained through an unlawful search of defendant’s home.
