International and European Tax Moot Court



The International and European Tax Moot Court is a simulated hearing before a tax tribunal. The competition consists of a written and an oral stage. Students first submit their memorials with their core arguments for both claimant and respondent with respect to a problem of international and European tax law. The best memorials qualify and are invited to subsequently present their arguments in oral proceedings.

The International and European Tax Moot Court is organised by KU Leuven, Belgium. This moot court is of particular interest for students in the Master in European and International Tax Law (LL.M.).

Past performance highlights:

  • 2016-2017: Team placed 8th overall


The training and preparatory meetings for this moot court were hard work but, in the end, we saw that it was worth it. The feeling to finally plead our case before the jury was incredible. In a moot court, students have the opportunity to learn a lot – things that you will never learn in the same way in class. We were trained to work in a team, we learned a lot on written and oral pleading skills and of course on the substantive topics of European and international tax law.
