The students' competition will take place at the Lisbon Court of Appeal

VdAcademia, Vieira de Almeida & Associados (VdA)'s first training academy and the sole one officially certified by DGERT in legal studies supports the National Moot Court's third edition which is to take place on the 22 November, at the Lisbon Court of Appeal between 9.30 a.m and 6.30 p.m. with an awards ceremony to be held at VdA's auditorium.

The National Moot Court is organized by the Students Association of the University of Lisbon Faculty of Law (Associação de Estudantes da Faculdade de Direito da Universidade Nova de Lisboa - AEFDUNL) and the Portuguese Society of International Law (Sociedade Portuguesa de Direito Internacional - SPDI) and alongside the support from VdAcademia also counts with the support from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (Ministério dos Negócios Estrangeiros - MNE), the Ministry of Agriculture and the Sea (Ministério da Agricultura e do Mar) and the Secretary of State for Culture (Secretário de Estado da Cultura). "It is a great pleasure for us to see the competition we have supported from the first instance to be such a success and already entering its third session. These Moot Courts are an essential tool towards approaching the academic and the professional worlds and not only strengthen the students' legal skills but also their soft skills very much in line with what VdAcademia has been providing to its employees through its training plan for some years now", says Rodrigo Esteves de Oliveira, president of VdAcademia and partner at VdA.
