Swiss Moot Court 2018/2019

Bernese succeed at Swiss Moot Court

On 16 February 2019, the Bernese law students Sara D’Antoni and Jan Heller defeated the St. Gallen team in the finale of the Swiss Moot Court and won the most significant competition for law students in Switzerland. At the Federal Surpreme Court in Lucerne, where the competition was held, the team defeated another 46 teams from all over Switzerland. The teams had to plead against each other in a complex inheritance dispute in various rounds. The two Bernese students convinced the jury of 12, consisting of experts in legal research and practice, with a strong performance and great expertise, for example with correct and precise responses to interposed questions from the jury. The Institute for Civil Law and the University of Bern proudly acknowledge their great success and congratulate the winning team.
