Kyiv-Mohyla Academy took second place in the prestigious competition The Nuremberg Moot Court 2017- a simulated process that takes place in front of the “International Criminal Court.” 40 teams from 26 countries took part in the Nuremberg Moot Court Competition and argued a fictitious international criminal law case before the “International Criminal Court”. Dissecting both complex procedural and substantive issues of international criminal law, students were given the opportunity to apply and develop their moot court skills at the momentous Courtroom 600 of the Nuremberg Trials. The unique location of Nuremberg allows students to practice international criminal law at its very birthplace, offering a historical educational experience. Highly esteemed professionals in the field, such as judges, academics and other practitioners sit on the moot court panels.
We congratulate the Kyiv-Mohyla legal team: Stanislav Demianiuk, Anastasia Yermolenko, Adriana Kryveshko, and Vitalii Trachuk for taking the high marks home!
As a reminder, the NaUKMA team of undergraduate law students were declared winners of the European Moot Court Competition on the European Convention on Human Rights earlier this year.
