DLSU LAW STUDENTS CLINCH 12TH SPOT IN NUREMBERG MOOT COURT TILT
LAW students from the De La Salle University clinched the 12th spot in the Nuremberg Moot Court Competition held in Germany.
The team composed of Shane Andrew Magnaye, Angelica Cecilia Dino, Cyrul Matthew Josol, and Jena Therese Tiongson bested more than a hundred other groups from law schools around the world.
In January, they were among the 32 teams to advance from the written memorials and to be invited to compete in the oral rounds.
The group was coached by Atty. Ryan Hartzell and Professor Rebecca Khan.
“The oral rounds of the moot were held at the birthplace of International Criminal Law: Courtroom 600 of the Nuremberg Palace of Justice, the very courtroom where the 1945 Nuremberg trials were held after the end of World War II,” the DLSU said.
“The DLSU-TDSOL team traveled to Nuremberg and competed in 3 intense days of oral hearings, with some of the matches presided over by actual judges of the International Criminal Court. From the top 32, the DLSU-TDSOL team further advanced to the round of 16 after the qualifying matches, and finished 12th place,” it added.
The competition simulates a case heard before the ICC, an international tribunal created by the Rome Statute to hold individuals accountable for war crimes and crimes against humanity.
