The International Criminal Court's trial simulation contest will take place on June 2-7, 2019 in The Hague, The Netherlands. This competition welcomes universities from all over the world for a high level of debate, simulating the proceedings of the International Criminal Court. The competition consists of a packed educational and social program of six days bringing together students from different backgrounds and cultures in The Hague to challenge their skills as future international advocates.
The final round is expected to take place in a courtroom with a concrete panel of the International Criminal Court.
The competition involves co-operation with judges from international courts, professors of international law (criminal) and other legal professionals. This network makes the contest a realistic simulation of the hearings held at the International Criminal Court. The competition issues address the fundamental issues of International Criminal Law as both procedural and substantive.
70 teams from 55 different countries of the world are listed in the 2019 edition of the International Criminal Court Judicial Contest Contest. For the first time, there is also a representative team from Russia.
Supporting students in activities at home and abroad and training them to compete with their colleagues around the world is one of the top priorities of Bedër University.
