The European Law Moot Court was initiated by Prof. Waltraud Hakenberg, Former Registrar of the Civil Service Tribunal of the European Union. In 2020, the moot takes place for the 21st time already. Currently, the moot is conducted under the supervision of 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.
