The sixth edition of the Oxford French Law Moot will take place on Monday 11 March 2013 at the Law Faculty of the University of Oxford, followed by a dinner for all participants at Trinity College.
Mooters (in teams of two) will argue, in French, over a problem of French private law which will be distributed to them in late 2012. The teams will face one another over four rounds of competition and the final will be judged by a jury presided over by Mr Alain Lacabarats, President of the Social Chamber of the Cour de cassation.
The Moot is open to undergraduate students who, at the time of their participation, are registered for a law degree of which no more than half of the credits are taken at a French university. It is also open to postgraduate students who do not hold an undergraduate law degree which was taken, for more than half of its credits, at a French university.
The deadline for receiving applications is Friday 7 December 2012. Candidates should apply through their local coordinator, who will send an application form (available on the Moot website via the link below) along with the applicants’ curriculum vitae. Students from universities with no existing coordinator are welcome to apply, but must first secure the agreement of a member of academic staff to act in that capacity and supervise their preparation.
