Moot Courts and Legal Clinics at Ghent University

Every year the Faculty of Law and Criminology takes part in several moot courts and here is where all the information about it can be found!

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.

If this sounds like an academic adventure that you would like to embark on – please have a look at more detailed information concerning the specific moot courts  below! Hope to welcome you to one of our teams soon!
