European Union law moot court held at University of Amsterdam

30 November 2015

Students from across the country met at the Amsterdam Law School for the 2015 moot court competition of the Netherlands Association for European Law (NVER).

As the winner of last year’s edition, the Amsterdam Law School helped to organize and hosted the 2015 EU law moot court competition of the NVER.

Teams from almost every Dutch university came to the Amsterdam Law School on 26 November to plead a casus on European law before a panel of EU specialists. The subject of the casus was a current one: refugee law and refugees’ right to admission to EU member states. The casus involved several preliminary questions about European refugee law as well as more general topics within European law. Participants and judges alike were enthusiastic about the day. We congratulate the Nijmegen team, which won this year!

Moot court competitions

Each year, International and European Law students at the ALS have the opportunity to participate in several international moot court competitions. UvA teams prepare and practice with lecturers and professors before travelling to competitions all over Europe. The UvA covers all expenses related to participation, including registration fees and travel expenses.
