This project aims to support ICU students who participate in international moot court competitions. The mooting opportunities include Japan Cup (Tokyo, July), Space Law Moot Court (Tokyo, March), and Nelson Mandela World Human Rights Moot Court (UN headquarter in Geneva, July). Teams of students from all over the world compete against one another through the presentation of oral and written pleadings to address timely issues of international law in the context of possible legal disputes or human rights violations. Students will be able to acquire practical lawyering skills for peaceful settlement of disputes.
