Moot Court Volunteers Needed

Interested in supporting a global moot court competition focused on Information Law? We are looking for attorneys with experience in implementing GDPR to either coach new teams (virtual opportunity) or act as a judge for this year's memo stage. We are looking for volunteers who can provide the value of their experience to new mooters and help to build the Helsinki Information Law (HILM) Moot while networking at the same time. Hearings are hosted by law firms in Helsinki, and the platform for the event (virtual or in person) is still to be determined.

Learn more about each role and apply here.
