For the past years, the Lucerne Academy has offered an internship with a well-respected NGO for the overall winner of our moot court competition. The Overall Winner is decided by an objective calculation of written memorial pleadings in addition to individual oral pleading scores. The Lucerne Academy strives each year to provide participants not only with the training necessary to succeed in defending human rights, but the opportunity to put that training to use in a work setting.
