ELSA/WTO Moot Court

AUWCL students participate annually in the World Trade Organization (WTO) Moot Court competition sponsored by the European Law Students Association (ELSA) in collaboration with the WTO.  The ELSA Moot Court Competition (EMC2)  is a simulated hearing of the Dispute Settlement System of the World Trade Organization. The competition is open to teams from around the globe, giving them the opportunity to present their legal skills and knowledge of WTO law in front of WTO and trade law experts.

Participating teams will compete first in one of the regional rounds in America, Asia-Pacific, Europe or Africa.  The best teams of each region will be qualified for the Final Oral Round taking place in May/June each year at the WTO Headquarter in Geneva, Switzerland.

AUWCL is proud to host the 2018 All American Regional Round of the 16th edition of the ELSA WTO Moot Court Competition, on March 21-24, 2018, at its new 8 ½ acre Tenley Town campus in Washington D.C.
