Young European Lawyers Contest

A new round of the Young European Lawyers Contest is starting now – in this format participants compete in multinational teams, where they are introduced to different legal cultures, by drafting written arguments, conducting negotiations and pleading before a judge. The jury consists of leading European law practitioners. The contest consists of the semi-finals in Brussels, Vilnius and Paris with the final taking place in Trier and the CJEU in Luxembourg.

The application deadline is 3 January 2023. Please forward this information to your young members or include it in your next newsletter. All participation conditions can be found on the YELC website.

The Young European Lawyers Contest is co-funded by the European Union; partner organisations for this round are the Paris Bar, the Warsaw Bar, the Slovak Bar Association and the Barcelona Bar Association (ICAB).
