Description : Every year, the Martens Moot Court Competition on International Humanitarian Law brings together the best law students, if not from the entire universe then at least from the universities of the CIS countries.
A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away ? Actually, no. This was April 2016 and the venue was Moscow.
Fifteen teams competed in the nineteenth Martens Competition, held in Moscow. The event ended on 21 April and involved participants from Russia, Belarus and Armenia.
The participants had to deal with all the intricacies of a Universe-wide conflict.
For four days, the teams learned how to implement IHL in practice. They had to justify their positions and try to come to an agreement with the opposing party, using all their knowledge and skills to find legal arguments supporting their positions. In each new round, participants had to assume a new position, sometimes the opposite of their previous one.
