PAX Moot 2020 – Registration Now Open

The PAX Moot is a specialised moot court competition focused on Transnational Law and Private International Law issues.

Registration is now open until 30 March 2020. The fee is set at 100 Euros per team.

The competition comprises a written round and oral round. For the written round each team will be required to submit an assignment as requested by the case. The oral round will take place on 28-29 May 2020, preceded by a welcoming event for all teams on 27 May.

The first day of the competition (general rounds) will be held at the University of Antwerp. On the second day, the participating teams will be invited to the European Commission in Brussels, where the semi-finals and final rounds will be held.

This year’s case will be drafted by Alex Layton QC.

Besides the collective prizes for best team and best written submission, one member of the final winning team will be given the Best Speaker Award of the Moot. The Moot’s partner, Herbert Smith Freehills, has invited the next recipient of that award for an internship in its Paris office.
