The results of the International Criminal Court's moot trial English Competition in China were announced on April 10, 2021, and the Beijing Normal University team won the championship prize of this competition, and at the same time, it was once again qualified to represent China in the international competition held by the Hague International Competition Organizing Committee in June.
Affected by the epidemic situation, the Organizing Committee of ICCMCC China cancelled the competition in the court debate stage of the 2021 International Criminal Court moot trial English Competition, and the final result of the competition was determined according to the scores of the written pleadings of each team. The written results of the Beijing Normal University team finally ranked third, and won the championship prize of this competition. This is the third championship award won by the Beijing Normal University team in the past four years.
The International Criminal Court is the first permanent international criminal judicial organ established by the international community, which plays a very important role in combating international crimes and establishing a unified international criminal legal system. The Chinese government has always supported the punishment of crimes that seriously endanger the common interests of human society and has always paid close attention to the work of the International Criminal Court. In order to train international criminal law talents and improve Chinese students' ability to use international languages for court debates, China University of Political Science and Law has agreed with the International Criminal Court to host an International Criminal Court moot trial Competition (English) China Trial Competition every March. In 2021, nearly 50 law school teams including Peking University, Tsinghua University, university of international business and economics and China University of Political Science and Law signed up for the eighth competition.
