PAX 2023 - Results

5 May  2023

We are thrilled to announce a successful completion of the PAX Moot Court 2023 – Peter Nygh Round!


The competition took place in Antwerp from 3 to 5 May. The preliminary rounds were held at the University of Antwerp and the semi-finals and finals at the Antwerp court.


The number of teams competing in this year's PAX Moot was the highest so far (37 teams). We were delighted to host 28 teams in the oral rounds. These 28 teams came from 12 EU states and 5 non-EU countries. There were 9 teams competing for the first time. The oral rounds were attended by 110 students in total. In the competition, 48 judges, attorneys, and academics served as judges.


The University of Ljubljana won the oral rounds, with the University of Vienna coming in second. The teams from Maastricht University and Singapore Management University advanced to the semi-finals.

The University of Vienna won the prize for the best written memorials, with the University of Ghent in second place and the University of Sofia in third.


Matej Igličar (University of Ljubljana) received the Best Oralist award. In the second place came Maximilian Murtinger and in third place Gustav Kirchauer (both of the University of Vienna).

We would like to convey our heartfelt gratitude to the European Commission for its financial support of the PAX 2.0 Project, which enables us to organize the PAX Moot Court!

Next year’s PAX Moot court competition will take place from 24 to 26 April in Ljubljana.

Dear PAX friends,


We are happy to announce that the continuation of the PAX Moot Court Competition is possible thanks to the pledged funding under the JUST 2027 Programme of the European Commission. The PAX organizing team is very thankful to the European Commission for their renewed support for the coming two years.


The tentative schedule for the 2022-2023 Round will be available soon. Note that the case will be out earlier than in previous years: 21 October 2022 is the target date. We hope that all participating teams will be willing to deepen your knowledge in private international law and enhance your advocacy skills around this new case!


As foreshadowed, we look forward to hosting the competition’s oral rounds in Antwerp in early May 2023. Obviously this is all very much subject to further adjustments if circumstances require.
