The ICC Moot Court Competition is the world's largest moot court competition on international criminal law with more than a hundred participating teams from across 50 countries. The annual event is organised by the Grotius Centre for International Legal Studies of Leiden University with the institutional support of the ICC. The competition simulates the proceedings of the International Criminal Court. It consists of an extensive six-day educational and social program, which brings together students of diverse backgrounds and cultures to The Hague to challenge their skills as future international lawyers. The final round takes place in an actual ICC courtroom with ICC judges adjudicating.
Apart from this, Ayana Banerjee from the Class of 2021 also emerged as the best speaker in the national rounds of the tournament. We congratulate the team on their success and wish them the very best for the international rounds.
