2017-01-20

The annual European Law Moot Court Competition, with participants from leading universities all over Europe, has recently selected 48 teams out of a 100 that have qualified for the competition’s regional finals. The Uppsala team is one of the qualified teams.

This year’s team consists of four students: Kamil Akdag (King’s College), Edvin Sarrimo (Uppsala universitet), Bahare Sadeghi Gazani (Uppsala universitet) and Sean Docherty (University of Glasgow).

As regards the rest of the competition, the four winnings teams of the Regional Finals will be invited to the Final held at the Court of Justice of the European Union and judged by judges of the Court of Justice and General Court, as well as Advocate-Generals.

Approximately one hundred teams participate in European Law Moot Court Competition (ELMC) every year. In the competition the contestants get to analyze an imaginary scenario and present arguments for the viewpoints of the parties involved in written pleadings. The 48 best teams in this preliminary written part are then called to one of four regional finals, held during January to March, where they get to present their arguments orally in a competition trial. The winners of the regional finals meet in a concluding final in Luxembourg.

Participation in ELMC is included as part of the advanced course EU Commercial Law and Litigation (30 ECTS), held in the autumn term.
