ELSA Delegations

ELSA Delegations are the unique opportunities to represent ELSA during the most important sessions of the main international organisations and the meetings of other international partners. ELSA or ELS members, who have applied for the ELSA Delegation and have been appointed by the International Board, will sit next to national delegates and representatives of the most important NGOs, will experience, as observers, how decisions and policies are created at international level and will deepen their knowledge on relevant discussed issues. These organisations include UNESCO, WIPO, UNESCOSOC, UN Human Rights Bodies, Council of Europe, INTA and UNCITRAL.

ELSA Moot Court Competitions

A Moot Court Competition is a simulated hearing or court proceeding. Participants need to prepare written submissions to a fictitious case and present the parties in oral pleadings in front of an expert Jury. The term “Moot” comes from a term in the past where assemblies gathered to discuss certain issues. Moot Courts exist in every area of law and can last from one day to one year.
