    Moot Courts

    Moot Courts are simulated trials. The participants play lawyers and try to convince the judges not only of the greatness of their legal arguments, but also of the greatness of themselves. In the beginning Moot Courts were especially known in the anglo saxon parts but nowadays they are more and more beloved in Germany.
