The sixth International Criminal Court (ICC) Moot Court Competition- English edition was held in the Changping campus of the China University of Political Science and Law from March 23 to 24, 2019.
Some 34 teams from universities including the University of International Business and Economics (UIBE), Tsinghua University, Peking University, and the China University of Political Science and Law, participated in the moot court competition. Despite having nearly 10 more teams in this year's competition compared to last year's, the team from the School of Law, UIBE stood out from the 34 teams. It ranked first in the Chinese national round of the competition, winning the Award of the Best Memorandum, which qualified the team for the final competition in The Hague, Netherlands.
The worldwide ICC Moot Court Competition, a simulation of the proceedings before the International Criminal Court, has a profound impact in the field of international law. The ICC Moot Court Competition- English edition, co-hosted by ICC and the China University of Political Science and Law, aims to broaden the international perspective of law students, disseminate the concept of international criminal law, and improve students' understanding of international criminal law and their ability to debate in English.
