The Helsinki Information Law Moot

The Helsinki Information Law Moot is a moot court (mock trial) competition aimed at helping law students to delve deeper into the world of information law. In the annual competition students have to solve a legal problem, first entering written submissions and then competing in oral rounds. It gathers together people and students from around the world to explore topics including data protection, access to documents, governmental surveillance and more.

The Law Moot is an excellent opportunity for law students to show their interest in the field and gain valuable experience in argumentation and presenting a case.

A team has already been formed to represent the University of Helsinki during the 2021 moot. However, if you have any questions or would like more information, please email

The problem for the 2021 competition has been published and can be viewed at the competition's homepage. The deadline for registration is the 8th of October, 2020.
