Moot Courts are not new to The Hague; they are already compulsory for law students at the university. What makes this Moot Court unique, however, is that it is intended for high school students. It will give young people who are (or may be) interested in studying law and who enjoy debating the opportunity, as part of a team, to show what they can do.
The students learn how international (criminal) law works. They learn how to think, argue and present a case logically. Skills that will stand them in good stead in the future. The working language in the Moot Court is English.
