Our Experiential Education method inspires and motivates students to do research and increase their knowledge. At the Amsterdam Law Practice (ALP) students learn by doing, and connect with society at large by working with fellow students towards the solution of social problems. As a part of the Amsterdam Law Practice, students may apply for participation in moot courts dealing with WTO or investment arbitration. A three-day study trip to Geneva is planned for the Spring (at students’ own expense).
Nothing says ‘practical training’ for future international lawyers like moot court competitions. Every year, students have a chance to participate in various competitions. Teams get solid preparation with lecturers and professors before travelling to moot courts all over Europe. The UvA will cover all expenditures related to participation, including registration fees and travel expenses.
The ELSA Moot Court Competition is a simulated hearing of the World Trade Organization dispute settlement system and is open to teams from around the globe. It is a great opportunity to gain a rewarding experience and make invaluable professional contacts with high-profile, international legal experts.
