This was done by inviting four alumni to form a panel. The first part of the evening was a panel discussion where statements were posed to the panel, and they could voice their opinions. The second part of the evening was a Q&A where all participants were welcomed to ask their questions to any of the panellists or others.

International Moot Court - Academic Committee x Magister JFT | DiCiT
Date: 17th of February 2022
This event was held online on Zoom, and it was in collaboration with the Dutch pleading committee DiCiT of Magister JFT. Hence, the event was both open to Dutch law students and Global Law students. A moot court allows students to act as a legal counsel in small groups, whereby they are encouraged to come up with their own arguments in order to defend their side in front of judges, who gave constructive feedback to all the teams. The participants were, therefore, able to engage in public speaking and practising the formalities needed in court. It was, overall, a great practical experience for everyone!
