The EHRMCC is a simulated hearing of the European Court of Human Rights. The competition consists of two rounds: the written round and the Final Round. The Competition provides a unique opportunity for students to experience the principles and implementation of the European Convention on Human Rights firsthand.
All teams participate in the written round in which they prepare written submissions for both the applicant and the respondent. The Final Round is the last stage of the competition, where the best 20 teams compete. The Final is organised annually in Strasbourg with the pleadings taking place at the European Court of Human Rights. Every member of the winning team is invited for the traineeship at the European Court of Human Rights.
Participants sign up in teams of 2-4 students and only students enrolled in undergraduate or masters’ studies from a school or law faculty awarding a law degree are allowed to participate at the Competition. If you are interested in participating, you should contact your local MCC Officer. In case your university does not have a Local ELSA Group, please contact the VP MCC of ELSA UK at email@example.com.
