On Friday 24 and Saturday 25 May, the Asser institute will co-organise the 7th edition of the PAX moot court competition. The moot court is part of the EU-funded JUDGTRUST research project, led by Asser researcher Vesna Lazic, which focuses on the Brussels Ibis Regulation.

The PAX moot court is a student court competition that focuses on private international law issues. In the competition, participants will experience the complexities and nuances of this area of law. They will plead against each other in several rounds, with the final round taking place in the Peace Palace, The Hague.  The event is organised together with Antwerpen University (a partner in the JUDGTRUST project) and with Sciences Po, Paris.
The participating students come from eleven law schools in eight countries.
