The Institute of European and Comparative Law organises the French Law Moot which is held each year, in March, in the Law Faculty. The Moot brings together law students from outside of France who argue, in French, over a problem of French law. It is geared mostly, albeit not exclusively, at students for whom French is a second language and French law a second legal system. This makes the Moot a unique event within the Faculty.
Since its inception in 2008 as a competition open only to Oxford students, the Oxford French Law Moot (Concours de plaidoiries en droit français) has grown to become a national, European and then worldwide event, which is made possible through the financial support of Gide Loyrette Nouel, the only international law firm with roots in France. It is also supported by the Association Henri Capitant des amis de la culture juridique française and the Société de Législation Comparée. Each year, the final of the event is judged by a panel consisting of a partner of Gide, a law professor from France and a judge from the Court of Cassation, France’s supreme court in civil and criminal matters.
