On 27 November 2013 a moot court competition for master students was held within study course „Changing European Human Rights Law” with participation of Danutė Jočienė who few weeks ago finished her term as a judge of the European Court of Human Rights elected from Lithuania.
Moot court competitions in the study process allow students to develop their research and public presentation skills.
The case was based on real events – about a teenager, who was found hanged at her home after suffering months of bullying by anonymous persons on internet portal. The teams representing the applicant and the government before the panel of judges had to demonstrate whether the portal should be held liable for the content of the posts which provoked teenager’s death, as it was not possible to identify the anonymous commentators.
The moot court competition was won by the team representing applicant: Olena Guz, Gabriela Loskovska, Vira Nosalchuk and Daina Ruduša. The titles of the best speakers were awarded to Olena Guz and Tamar Zurabishvili.
