Hej to my ducks !
I will write this article entirely in English, but don't worry it will be bad English so that everyone can understand !
It's dedicated to my classmates. I have been with them for approximately four months now and we have had lot of fun. Some of them are leaving Sweden for good (what a shame !) in a few days, some of them are going to visit Europe, and some others are staying for another semester here !
This semester, we all chose to major in International Law, and with our great professor Iain Cameron, we train for the Telders International Moot Court Competition. Four classmates get chosen to take part in this well known competition.
The Telders Competition is undoubtedly the most prestigious international law debating competition in Europe. It involves a hypothetical dispute between two states before the International Court of Justice. The teams consist of four persons each, split into two groups, one of which represents the applicant state and one the respondent state. Only one team per country is permitted in the competition. Teams from 23 different European countries take part, and the competition takes place in the Peace Palace in the Hague, before judges of the Court and other experts of international law. There are two stages in the Competition. The first stage, from October to January, involves the preparation of written memorials. The second stage is the oral rounds, which are held in April, and consist of oral pleadings against four other teams.
It is no exaggeration to say that participating students from the different teams are among Europe's best in the area of international law.
Uppsala has had a number of successes in the competition, inter alia, Finalists 2005 and 2007, Winner of the Final 2004 and 2006, Overall Winning Team 2000, second place 2002, 1998, 1997 and 1992, third place 1996 and fourth place 1995. Participation in the Telders Competition for the Uppsala students is counted as part of the course International Law - Classical Concepts, directed by Professor Iain Cameron.
