The European Union (EU) has been created and evolved as a strong politico-economic union, designed to put together the powers of the Member States through a system of supranational and intergovernmental decision making (CIA - The World Factbook). However, in order to reach those goals, it was necessary for each of the Member States to make some sacrifices as far as national sovereignty is concerned, in favour of common decisions that involved all Member States. 

Our partners at ELSA Cluj-Napoca held their now annual National Moot Court Competition on Criminal Law, which took place between April 23 and 24 at the Cluj Court of Appeal. It was a highly expected event that brought together 12 teams of students from different cities all around the country, such as Craiova, Timișoara, Sibiu, Bucharest and last but not least, their own Cluj-Napoca. 

A team of three third year law students from the Babeș-Bolyai Law School of Cluj-Napoca has participated in the European Human Rights Moot Court Competition held February 15-18 at the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg. With a lot of hard work and dedication, Marina Fortuna, Alexandros Bakos, and Sabrina Matei made it to the final and won the third place.
