Nuremberg Moot 2020

Do you have what it takes to be a part of the team representing the University of Sheffield in the annual Nuremberg International Criminal Law moot competition? We are looking for a team of students who are willing and able to take part in this competition.

The competition runs from 29th July – 1st August 2020, in Nuremberg, Germany.

You should have:

  • A keen interest in international law,
  • Previous mooting experience,
  • The motivation to work independently.

This competition is open to all students studying in the School of Law. The School will provide funding to cover travel and accommodation.

Beyond funding support, this Moot is a competition run externally to the School of law and therefore coaching support is limited: the ability to set and meet your own targets (and to be self-directed) is therefore essential.

The annual competition is judged by expert lawyers and judges working in the field of International Criminal Law. The competition also involves over 50 Universities from 6 continents taking part.

Entry to the competition is subject to an application being accepted by the competition organisers. This means that, even if you are successful at gaining a place on the School of Law team, the team is not guaranteed to gain entry into the competition.

The team will be coordinated by Gareth Bramley and Jack Coyne (a past-participant of the Moot).

If you think that you are the right candidate for this competition, please email Gareth Bramley (, with a short paragraph (no more than 250 words) setting out why you feel you are an ideal participant, before 16:00 on Friday 31st January 2020. A selection meeting will be held the following week.
