Moot Courts

In cooperation with the ICWC, students from various disciplines are sent to so-called Moot Courts each year. One or more court hearings are simulated. As a rule, students assume the roles of prosecutors or defence counsels, in some cases also those of judges. This allows them to apply and practice the theoretical knowledge they have acquired during their studies. The participants are supported by mentors who advise and coach them.

The Nuremberg Moot Court in International Criminal Law takes place annually in the historic courtroom 600 in Nuremberg - the venue of the Nuremberg Trial of Major War Criminals - and enjoys international significance and popularity. Marburg teams have been able to participate very successfully here in recent years.

The Model International Criminal Court (MICC) takes place every spring in the Polish town of Krzyżowa (Kreisau). Here the students not only take on the role of prosecution and defence, but can also prove themselves as judges. In addition, the MICC includes a press team, which makes this Moot Court particularly attractive for students of non-law disciplines.

Here you can find all information about the participation of Marburg students in the different Moot Courts.
