VdA Academia once again supports the Portuguese Moot Court in International Law, a moot court competition on International Public Law that is already in its 9th edition.

The Moot Court is organised by NOVA School of Law and the Faculty of Law of the University of Lisbon. The event is supported by VdA, VdA Academia, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Institute of Legal and Political Sciences of FDUL and NOVA LAW SU and will take place on May 9, at the Court of Appeal of Lisbon (Tribunal da Relação de Lisboa).

VdA will host in the afternoon the award ceremony and the closing session, in which the winning duo will be awarded Summer Traineeships at VdA.

This competition, to which VdA Academia has been associated since its inception 10 years ago, stands out for its pioneering spirit and importance in the national context, gathering more and more students, being expected this year more than 30 participating students, in a total of 8 teams from several national law schools.
