For the seventh year in a row VdA Academia supports the National Moot Court, a moot court competition on International Law, organized by the Students’ Association of the Nova University of Lisbon Faculty of Law, in association with The University of Lisbon Faculty of Law and Nova University of Lisbon Faculty of Law.
The 7th edition of the National Moot Court is taking place on the 11th November 2017 at the Lisbon Court of Appeal, between 9.00 a.m. and 6.30 p.m., with a closing and awards ceremony to be held at VdA’s auditorium.
This competition, sponsored by VdA Academia since its beginning, which stands out by its pioneering character in the Portuguese legal landscape and by its importance among Portuguese Law Schools, is gathering an increasingly number of students. This year, we are expecting more than 50 participants, coming mainly from Law Schools in Portugal.
Applications are open until the 24th November at The National Moot Court winners will be awarded summer internships at VdA.
The 2017’s edition jury will include, among others Lisa Ventura Lopes, Pedro Pires Fernande and Pedro Fontes, senior associates at VdA, who will be judging the moot court sessions throughout the competition.
