Thirty-six teams of two to four students submitted their applicant & defendant written pleadings in 2017. The best twelve qualified for the oral phase in Luzern and pleaded before a jury of twelve experts composed of federal judges, professors and lawyers. Four teams from Neuchâtel University qualified for the oral round.
