CEEMC 2023 was held in beautiful Dubrovnik and co-hosted by the University of Zagreb and the Inter-University Centre (IUC).
18 teams participated, including 2 teams who travelled from war-torn Ukraine. The mooting was, as always, at the highest level and the judges were hugely impressed.
The moot scenario involved questions concerning the mutual recognition of professional qualifications, the freedom to provide services (in the Uber-style transport market) and equal pay rules.
The judicial panel comprised judges and senior representatives from: the Court of Justice of the EU, the EU General Court, the EU Commission, the Honourable Society of the Inner Temple, the EWLA (European Women Lawyers Association), Cambridge University (Faculty of Law), senior judges from EU national courts and renowned legal professionals.
In the moot final, the team representing the University of Ljubljana won against the team from Charles University, Prague. The winners will visit the UK as the CEEMC’s guests at the University of Cambridge. They will also visit the UK’s Supreme Court and the Honourable Temple of Inner Temple.
Lea Zahrastnik (University of Ljubljana) and Aneta Dejlova (Charles University) won best speaker prizes and will undertake internships at the CJEU. Lea will visit the cabinet of AG Tamara Ćapeta and Aneta will visit the cabinet of Judge Jan Passer. We are extremely thankful to them both for their support of the CEEMC.
It would not have been possible to organise the CEEMC without the generous support of our main sponsors: Clifford Chance (Warsaw), the European Investment Bank (EIB) and the Inner Temple and a number of private donors. Since thanks to you all!
