About the Event

We’re pleased to announce that the Wellington Tertiary Model International Court of Justice (Model ICJ) is happening again this year!

What is the ICJ? Established in 1946 in The Hague, Netherlands, The International Court of Justice is the judicial body of the UN. The ICJ arbitrates legal disputes between countries and provides opinions on legal matters for the UN.

Our flagship tertiary event stages a case before this unique court. This year, attendees will debate the issue of climate change liability: which countries are responsible for what? How do we distribute liability and compensation in a way which is both fair and effective (and most importantly, legal)?

Counsel will represent some of the countries involved in the ongoing climate change liability debate, and will argue the positions of those countries before a panel of judges. Those appointed as judges have the important responsibilities of making sure that counsels’ arguments hold up and deciding the final opinion of the court. No preparation or legal education is required; come along on the day and you'll be briefed on the content as judges or counsel!

The event will be held in Victoria University’s Kelburn Campus from 10:00am-4:00pm on Saturday, 24 July. This event will have free morning tea and lunch, as well as free coffee sponsored by l'Affare to power you through the event!

Registrations are now open and close at 8:00pm, Tuesday 20 July, so don’t miss out. Don't want to participate but interested in volunteering on the day itself? Amazing! We’re also looking for students to help run the event. Simply complete the registration form and indicate your interest in volunteering. Don’t hesitate to send us an email to thomas.roberts@unyouth.org.nz if you have any questions!

We look forward to receiving your application!
