Applications are open for the second edition of the unique moot competition in the field of sports law – SLAM (Sports Law Arbitration Moot). The competition is intended for students, who want to upgrade their theoretical knowledge to practical examples in the field of sports law. If you want to showcase your talents in front of internationally recognized arbitrators, this is the place to be. Team registration is possible until December 1, 2020.
After a successful completion of the first SLAM competition despite the epidemic, the start of the next edition is just around the corner. SLAM enables direct experience with sports law practice, in-depth cooperation with experts in the field of sports law and provides students with valuable experience, credit points at their faculty, and brings the best teams additional awards related to the field of sports law. The finalists will once again defend their theses before world-renowned arbitrators.
The deadline for “early bird” registration is November 15, and the final deadline for team registration is December 1, 2020.
The finals will take place in Ljubljana, Slovenia.
The competition is open to all students at law schools and other institutions that offer a law program within Europe. Each participating institution can apply one team consisting of three students. Upon receipt of the assignment, the teams will have some time to ask additional questions and obtain clarifications on the case, after which each team will prepare a written memorandum. The finalists will compete in oral proceedings in the final, which is scheduled for 30 and 31 March 2021, and will be hosted by Ljubljana, Slovenia.
