Brief information:

The "Telders Moot Court" is the largest moot court in Europe in the English language in the field of general public international law, as more than 40 teams from across Europe participate in the final rounds in The Hague every year. In 2021 the competition will celebrate its 44th edition, to which the University of Graz will enrol.

The subject matter always concerns a fictional dispute between two States before the International Court of Justice (ICJ). The language of the proceedings is English. The case (‚compromis‘), which is always distributed in September/October each year, concerns pertinent contemporary issues of general international law. As each country can only be represented by one team during the Telders Moot Court, national elimination rounds have to take place when more than one team per country has enrolled. In Austria only the University of Graz is likely to enrol for the 2021 competition. Therefore, it is likely that this team will go to the Hague in June 2021 to compete in the final rounds.
