Three Windsor Law students traveled to The Hague last month to participate in the International Criminal Court Moot. The competition involved 59 teams from 47 countries. Windsor Law went up with teams from Australia, Czech Republic, Finland, Ghana, Netherlands, Philippines, Romania, Singapore, Turkey, the United Arab Emirates, Kenya, Bosnia. Ireland, Indonesia, and Germany and argued before judges from all over the world as well. The team also had the opportunity to visit the new International Criminal Court building.

After six preliminary rounds, the team advanced to the quarter-finals. The team won a tough quarter-final round against the teams from the Philippines and Ireland and advanced on to the semi-finals. The team's journey in the competition ended after a tough semi-final round against teams from Germany and Indonesia in which Windsor Law represented itself as a very strong competitor.

Congratulations to all of the team members on their very strong showing in The Hague, for their dedication throughout the year, their strong teamwork, and for being excellent ambassadors for the University of Windsor throughout the competition. In particular, congratulations to Anjali Rajan for her winning performance in the quarterfinal rounds, to Shane Miles for his very strong performance in a tough semi-final around, and to Caroline Stacey for her strong performances in the preliminary rounds and for being the team's lead researcher and international law expert.
