Students from 40 different international law schools will take part in the European Law Students' Association (Elsa) first moot court competition.
All must argue out a fictitious dispute between two countries (on paper during the initial stages) as if in front of the World Trade Organization's (WTO) dispute settlement body. A panel of judges will then whittle the entries down to 12 teams, who will travel to the WTO's offices in Geneva for a series of final rounds, fought out in front of WTO legal experts.
"We have been talking about having a moot court competition for 12 years," said Bettina Kuperman, Elsa's current president. "Moot courts give you a forum to practise your [debating] and presentation skills."
Kuperman also hopes the competition will help students learn more about globalisation.
