Final meeting Migration Law Clinic 18/19

The Migration Law Clinic season 18/19 has been concluded. Two legal opinions on EU law and two Amicus Curiae briefs on Human Rights law were produced. Three of these advices are brought in pending procedures before the European Court of Justice and the European Court of Human Rights.

Tuesday 18 June the students participating in the projects had their final meeting in which they presented this year’s work to their fellow students and the staff of the ACMRL.

The students reflected on the previous year, sharing their enthusiasm about the projects, the experience of working on these difficult cases, the challenges of working within a diverse group of students, and the differences in procedures before the European Courts and regards the opinions or amicus curiae letters. The common feeling was that they had developed many skills that can normally not be learned from standard academic teaching, like the ability to decide how to deal with the complexity of problems as they manifest themselves in practice, or finding a shared focus in a process of group thinking. The International Migration and Refugee Law Moot Court competition and the seminar on law clinics organized by the MLC on the occasion of its 5 year anniversary were highly valued.

The new students of the Migration Law Clinic will be selected in september 2019, see for more information
