Challenge yourself in the field of business law!
Merilampi Case is a moot competition organised by Merilampi Attorneys, in which the participants work in pairs in pursuit of resolving an authentic client assignment. Merilampi Case is aimed at law students.
Business law is complicated, and problem-solving requires creativity and cooperation with the client. A lawyer needs to understand the client’s business and objectives related to it along with applicable jurisprudence. In this competition, the participants will face a legal challenge from a fictional client, which will alter and become more complicated during the journey – as it so often happens in real life.
The participating pairs will have to show creativity and acumen along with the ability to present the legal solution they have formulated to the client’s representatives. Each instalment will be evaluated, and feedback will be given to the participants. The jury of the competition includes representatives of Merilampi and prominent members of Finnish business life.
The winning pair will receive a prize of EUR 2 000 and both shall be awarded a six-month traineeship at Merilampi.
The course of the competition
The case will be published at the beginning of autumn. The competition begins with a preliminary task, which is sent in writing to all contestants. After the preliminary task, the competition will continue with two oral competitions held during the winter. The winner will be decided in the final held in March.
