Moot Court Competitions

Logo Moot Court CompetitionsFor several years now, the Department of Law has encouraged teams of its students to participate in international moot court competitions on public international law, international criminal law and international arbitration. The competitions, which take place entirely in English, are based on a particularly complex, fictitious legal case, and typically feature two phases: one in which students prepare written defensive pleadings, and one which simulates court hearings.

The various departmental teams have achieved remarkable results over the years, making Roma Tre a national centre of excellence in the field of procedural simulations.

Currently, the Department promotes the participation of its students in the following competitions:
