A team of students from the Faculty of Law takes part in the fourth Moot Court Competition at Leiden University

This is the first time UIC Barcelona has participated in a competition of this type

A team of students from the UIC Barcelona Faculty of Law took part in the fourth Moot Court Competition organised by Leiden University (the Netherlands) in collaboration with Baker & McKenzie. The competition was held online by the Grotius Centre for International Legal Studies of Leiden Law School at Leiden University and involved more than 80 teams from universities all over the world.

The team representing our Faculty for the first time in a Moot Court Competition was made up of students Georgina Bravo, Josep Farré, María Nogareda and Tatiana Vulpe, and coordinated by Dr Maria Mut, lecturer in Public International Law.

The Moot Court Competition involves the simulation of a legal dispute between two teams, over a current international legal conflict. This year, students studied and prepared arguments about a case related to the defence of children's rights.

The Childcare and Family Policies Chair of the Joaquim Molins Figuera Foundation, part of the UIC Barcelona Institute for Advanced Family Studies, sponsored the participation of the Faculty’s team.
