On June 15-17, the third Hugo Sinzheimer Moot Court Competition (HS MCC) was held in Cassino, Italy. The Georgian team won the competition by defeating Germany in the finals.

The HS MCC is an initiative by five labor law academics, including Georgian professor Zakaria Shvelidze. The aim of the HS MCC is to deepen and improve the knowledge of employment and labor law at the European level. Twelve teams from the European Union participated in the competition, with Georgia the only team from outside the EU.

The competition was judged by renowned professors from different European universities, lawyers and judges from the Netherlands and Austria, as well as Dr. Jean Michel Servais, former president of International Labor Organization, and Dr. Silvana Sciarra, judge of the Constitutional Court of Italy.

This year for the first time, with USAID/PROLoG's support, a competition in Georgia was organized to select students for the Georgian national team. Three ILIA University Master's Degree students and one student from the University of Georgia were selected for the team. 

USAID/PROLoG actively supports educational student competitions. With our support more than 300 students took part in different national and international moot court competitions since 2015.
