The European Law Moot Court was initiated by Prof. Waltraud Hakenberg, Former Registrar of the Civil Service Tribunal of the European Union. In 2019, the Moot Court takes place for the 20th time already in the actual courtroom of the European Court of Justice in Luxembourg.
Currently, the moot is conducted by Dr. Jean-Christophe Puffer-Mariette and Dr. Sibylle Seyr.
The Moot Court is a hands-on experience that provides students with an insight into the dealings of the European Court of Justice. While working on a real pending case or a variation of such a case, the acquired theoretical knowledge from the lectures at the Europa-Institut is broadened and complemented with practical experience.
