The International Criminal Court Moot Court Competition (ICC Moot Court Competition) is organized by the Grotius Centre for International Legal Studies, of Leiden University for the official website see here.
The Competition consists of an extensive 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 is expected to take place in an actual ICC courtroom with ICC judges adjudicating.
The ALMA National Round allows all participants to compete for the first place, while providing a further opportunity to master their skills in view of the Finals in The Hague. The winning team will be able to participate in The Hague competition week and will receive a travelling grant, courtesy of the Israel Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Participation in the National Round is in itself an enriching experience and exposes students to the field and to the practitioners!
Between 2012 - 2016, The Law Faculty of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem was the only Israeli team participating in the Competition. They have reached impressive results reaching 5th place in 2013 Finals and 2nd place in 2014 Finals! In the 2016 competition the Hebrew University team passed to the quarter finals round.
