International Criminal Court (ICC) Moot Competition

Regional Round for the Americas and Caribbean (formerly the Pace International Criminal Court Moot Competition)

"Save the Date”
The date for next year’s ICC Moot is:
Friday, March 17, 2017 – Sunday, March 19, 2017

Registration is now open.  The deadline for registration is Monday, October 31, 2016.

In 2004, Professor Emeritus Gayl S. Westerman and Matthew E. Brotmann organized a unique event:  the world’s first moot court competition based on the law and procedures of the first permanent international tribunal dedicated to the prosecution of international criminal offenses.

The International Criminal Court (“ICC”) has grown since then, and our competition has grown with it.  Pace has partnered with the International Criminal Court (“ICC”) and the Grotius Centre for International Legal Studies, Leiden University to become part of a new global competition, the ICC Moot Court Competition, which is held annually in The Hague, Netherlands, with the final round judged at the ICC itself by ICC judges and legal officers.  The annual competition at Pace now serves as a Regional Qualifying Round for that global competition.

Teams from the Americas and the Caribbean seeking to participate in this competition must register with Pace pursuant to the procedures provided on this website.  Based on the number of registrations received from each country, we notify each team whether or not advancement to the global competition depends upon participation in the Regional Round at Pace.  Pursuant to the rules of procedure of the international competition, participation in the global competition is usually limited to two teams per country.

Registration for the 2017 competition is now open.
