Call for Applications: 2021 ICC Moot Court Competition
October 5, 2020

The Center for Human Rights and Global Justice is accepting applications for the NYU Team that will compete in the International Criminal Court (ICC) Moot Court Competition.  Regional rounds will be held virtually by Pace Law School March 13-14, 2021. Five qualifying teams will advance to the finals and argue before ICC judges in the international round.

International criminal law is a fascinating subject and sits at the confluence of domestic criminal law, general international law, and human rights law. Team members will work on a whole range of issues, sharpen their legal research and writing, gain experience with oral arguments, and work with a fantastic group of people.

While preparation will begin this semester, the submission of written materials will require work over the winter break, and participation in oral arguments will take place during the spring. The international criminal law component can be learned effectively during the process, though previous knowledge is an advantage.


JD, LLM, and JSD students currently enrolled at NYU Law are eligible, but only those not admitted to practice law in any jurisdiction.
