Moot Court competitions are an excellent way to gain practical training for future international lawyers. Each year, international and European Law students have the opportunity to participate in several Moot Court competitions. UvA teams prepare and practice with lecturers and professors before travelling to competitions all over Europe. The UvA covers all expenditures related to participation, including registration fees and travel expenses.
