2012 ICC Moot Court Competition

This past weekend Pace Law School hosted the 9th Annual Pace/ICLN International Criminal Court Moot. Teams from throughout the Western Hemisphere competed at what has become the premier competition of its kind. The weekend began with a colloquium focusing on international criminal and humanitarian law at Open Society Foundations headquarters in NYC with experts from around the globe participating.

Congratulations to the Pace ICC Moot Court team for taking second place in the ICC Moot competition.  The team, coached by last year’s team captain, Lucie Olejnikova, and Adjunct Professor Peter Widulski, consists of James Healy, Brian Leonardi, Joseph Sinchak, Matthew Guber, and Alexis Keller.  The team received excellent assistance and advice from Allison Kline, an oralist on last year’s team.  Finishing as the best U.S. team in the competition, the Pace team will advance to compete in the finals to be held in The Hague from 22 - 27 April 2012.
