The ADC-ICT organises a Mock Trial each year, together with the International Criminal Law Bureau. The Mock Trial is a one-week event hosted by the ADC-ICT in The Hague. The week includes hands-on evening sessions for young professionals in the field of international criminal law and a one-day Mock Trial exercise in the IRMCT Courtroom in front of international Judges and Counsel.
The evening sessions focus on practical skills and expertise and are given by experienced Counsel to prepare participants for a career in international criminal law. Topics include "legal drafting", "oral trial advocacy", "opening and closing statements" and "ethics in international criminal law". Participants will be requested to make written filings in teams as well as perform in the courtroom on the day of the Mock Trial.
