Nuremberg Moot Court 2016


The Nuremberg Moot Court 2016 took place from July 28th until July 30th 2016. The competition aimed to encourage university students to become familiar with International Criminal Law by arguing a fictitious case in front of the "International Criminal Court". At the same time, it promoted the fundamental heritage of the Nuremberg Trials: criminal accountability within armed conflicts in keeping with the spirit of Human Rights and governed by the principle of fair trial as enshrined in the ICCPR in particular.
