USAID/PROLoG Supports Georgian Students to Participate in Hugo Sinzheimer Moot Court Competition

On February 24, USAID/PROLoG supported Ilia State University HR Chair organized Hugo Sinzheimer Moot Court (HSMC) National Selection Competition at Ilia State University. The aim of the HSMC Competition is to deepen and improve Georgian law students’ knowledge of employment and labor law at the European level. It offers an opportunity for the students to experience the operation of European labor law in as realistic a setting as possible

Nineteen students applied for the competition, and after interviews eight students from five different Georgian law schools were selected for the national competition. Before the competition, the students provided written statements on the HSMC’s 2018 model case. The competition itself consisted of two rounds, with the students changing their roles in each round so that each participant had the opportunity to provide legal arguments from the perspectives of both the claimant and defendant. The panel of judges was composed of three law experts: Tamar Kordzazia (Ilia State University), Zakaria Shvelidze (HSMC organizing committee member) and Davit Maisuradze (Ilia State University). The judges scored the oral performances of the students based on their ability to present the case and arguments in a persuasive, convincing, logical, and coherent way.

Based on the judges’ scoring, four students were declared the winners of their rounds and the competition: Nino Kotishadze, Elene Samadbegishvili, Tamar Gogiberidze and Lela Gigauri. These four students will form the Georgian national team, which will participate at the third Hugo Sinzheimer Moot Court Competition to be held on June 14-16 at the University of Cassino in Italy.
