  • European Union Institutions

    Essential to the success of the competition has always been the healthy collaboration with members of the institutions, in particular we are fortunate that over the years the President of the CEEMC Judicial Panel has always been a member or former member of the European Court of Justice: Lord Slynn of Hadley, AG Fennelly, AG Sharpston. The prize of best speaker has entitled its holder to visit the Court of Justice, formerly the chambers of AG Francis Jacobs, currently in the chambers of the UK Advocate General, Eleanor Sharpston or Bulgarian Judge, Alexander Arabadjiev.

    In addition members of the cabinets of the UK Advocate General, Czech Advocate General, Bulgarian and Czech and Polish General court judges, as well as of EFTA Surveillance Authority have assisted as part of the drafting committee.

  • Clifford Chance-Sponsor

    CLIFFORD CHANCE solicitors (through its CEE local offices) has been the main sponsors of the competition for over 15.

    Many former competitors have taken up the opportunity of then doing work experience with Clifford Chance and as a result offered full time employment in offices in the region.

  • The Honourable Society of The Inner Temple-Sponsor

    The Inner Temple is one of the four Inns of Court, which play a central role in the education, training and continuing professional development of the barristers’ legal profession in England and Wales. Barristers have the primary right of audience in the English courts and the majority of judges are appointed from this profession. Advocacy training is an essential requirement for the trainee barrister and this training is given by judges/senior barristers of each of the Inns.

    The winning CEEMC team members are invited to visit the Inner Temple during their visit to the Supreme Court in London.
    A senior member of the Inner Temple joins AG Eleanor Sharpston as a member of the CEEMC judicial panel. Regular CEEMC judges are also members of the Inn, Prof Rosa Greaves and Carsten Zatschler and guest judges include; Lord Justice Laws in 2013, Sir Konrad Schiemann in 2014 and Kieron Beale QC in 2016 and 2017.
