Aims & Purposes

Based on realistic disputes before national courts, the CEEMC moot question involves a number of EU law issues which result in a preliminary reference being sent from the national court to the CJEU.

The CEEMC moot teams are required to prepare written pleadings on behalf of each of the litigants in the national case, and to deliver oral arguments on behalf of those litigants.

The CEEMC Judicial Panel includes present and former members of the CJEU, members of other EU institutions, national judges, renowned academics and professional lawyers.

The CEEMC has been instrumental in training generations of lawyers from Universities in the CEE region.  Aside from developing the team members’ written and oral advocacy skills, it has helped to instil a deeper sense of European identity and foster international friendships.

We hope that those who participate in the CEEMC will pass on the benefit of their experience and knowledge. We are particularly pleased when former mooters return as coaches. Some have even become CEEMC judges.

Numerous CEEMC mooters have gone on to have illustrious careers in connection with EU law. Some even became Advocates General or Judges at the CJEU, while others excelled in other EU institutions.
