Moot Courts at Ghent University

What are Moot Courts and why should I be taking part?

Former moot court students from Ghent University have, amongst others, gone on to work for top law firms in Brussels and abroad, continued their education at top-ranked universities and have gone on to work in academia. Not only do moot court participants acquire invaluable personal and professional skills, it allows for interactive teamwork between the students, experts and the coaches as well as the development of a critical and analytical approach.
