Leiden Wins ICC Moot

by Kevin Jon Heller

From the Court’s press release:

Today, 26 April 2013, Leiden University won the final round of the International Criminal Court (ICC) Trial Competition, English version, held in ICC Courtroom I in The Hague (Netherlands). Osgoode Hall Law School of York University (Canada) and Bond University (Australia) won, respectively, second and third place. The Best Speaker award went to Katherine Stewart of Osgoode Hall Law School. Leiden University’s winning team was composed of John Doyle, Sophie Beelaerts van Blokland, Uzay Aysev, Alexander Wills, Joe Holt, Daniel Huck and Adrian Plevin.

Congratulations to Leiden and the runners up. I’m particularly delighted — and completely unsurprised — that the winning team included Alexander Wills, who was one of the smartest students I’ve ever had the pleasure to teach. It’s not every day that an LLB student publishes an article in the Journal of International Criminal Justice — in the special issue dedicated to the crime of aggression, no less. Employers: he’s one to keep an eye on.
