Moot Court on European Wine Law,
launched in 2015, organized in French and English.
Objective: Familiarize the students with practical questions of European and International Wine and Alcoholic Beverages Law, through a Moot Court, organized by the Jean Monnet Chair on the European Regulation of the Wine Sector, funded by the European Commission and hosted by the Wine & Law Program.
Organization: The Module consists in organizing a written procedure (exchange of documents) according to the rules of the European Court of Justice. However, the Moot Court interests also students and Universities outside Europe, since the Case will concern questions of international wine trade and the access to the largest market for wines worldwide (the EU).
Teams are composed by two or three law students at any level of studies. The team must be recommended officially by a University Professor of the establishment of origin. A course on International Law or European Law or Wine Law or Food Law or IP Law is highly recommended. Each University can be represented by one team. This limit does not apply to Erasmus students hosted by a University. There is no registration fee.
The Jury of the Moot Court, composed by at least one Member of the International Wine Law Association, one Representative of the International Vine and Wine Organization and one Academic will conceive a Case and will make a random choice on the opposing teams.
The written procedure will last approx. 2 months. The exact calendar will be published later. On the basis of the written statements the Jury will select the two finalist teams.
The two finalist teams will be arguing the Case in Reims (Champagne), before the Jury, in public, according to the rules of procedure of the ECJ. The Jury will decide upon the winning team on the basis of criteria to be fixed in the Regulation of the Competition. A cocktail will be organized afterwards with the participation of representatives of the wine industry at the international level.
The Jean Monnet Chair may cover travel and accommodation expenses for finalist teams coming from abroad.
