Overview

Wellington Model International Court of Justice is back! This unique event is the notch in your belt that any university student must have. A faithful replication of the International Court of Justice, Wellington Model ICJ will put the question of justice between UN member states to tertiary students, who must utilise logic, fairness, and of course law to come to a ‘just’ conclusion.

 

This is an experience not to be missed! It will provide an invaluable insight into the inner workings of the judicial branch of the United Nations, perfect for law students wanting to put what they’ve learnt in lectures to the test, for any student who has an interest in international relations, and for every student who is looking for a unique experience to expand their worldview!

 

UN Youth Wellington is looking for students to take on the exciting roles on the organising committee. In this role you will learn essential professional development skills to put you in good stead both professionally and personally. The committee experience will develop your communication, organisational, and professional skills that will benefit you no matter your course of study or future employment.

 

If you want to develop your skills, and challenge yourself with something new, apply now! Applications close on on the 19th of December 11:59pm.
