GENERAL PRESENTATION

The second edition of the Moot Court Competition on the European Social Charter will take place at the University of Ferrara (Italy) on 31 March 2023, at the initiative of the Italian Section of ANESC.

This bilingual (French-English) competition is based on a fictitious collective complaint and includes a written phase and an oral phase. Participation in the competition is open to law students registered with a University. By drawing lots, half of the competing teams are given the status of “claimants” and the other half the status of “respondent government ».

The written phase consists of the drafting of a collective complaint (for “applicant” teams) or a memorandum (for “respondent government” teams). The oral phase consists of a mock “hearing” before the European Committee of Social Rights (represented by the juries), within the meaning of Article 7 (4) of the Protocol of 9 November 1995.
