Nuremberg Moot Court 2019

The International Nuremberg Principles Academy and the International Criminal Law Research Unit (ICLU) of Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU) conducted the fifth edition of the Nuremberg Moot Court from 24 to 27 July 2019. The Nuremberg Moot Court 2019 welcomed around 200 law students of 50 universities from 36 countries, representing all continents, in Nuremberg.

The students refined their advocacy skills by competing on a fictitious case in international criminal law, presenting their arguments in the roles of Prosecution and Defense. The 2019 competition case challenged the participants on the subject of enforced disappearances.

The international jury was made up of high-profile judges, including judges, prosecutors, and academics. Judge Ivana Hrdlicková, President of the Special Tribunal for Lebanon, presided in the finals.

In the finals, the winning team of National University of Singapore, consisting of Fong Han Tan, Felicia Ng, Sarah Lu, Yin-Ing Low, and Qianwei Huang, won against the team of the Birzeit University from Palestine.
