The university told MTI that the team of the Eötvös Loránd University of Budapest Law School (ELTE ÁJK) won the 2021 round of the world’s most prestigious competition law debate competition.

The law students instructed Oxford and King’s College competitors, among others, from the 43 participating teams, and in the final, NUS defeated former moot competition law champion Herbert Smith Freehills, the statement said.

The competition was based on an ongoing dispute between Apple and Spotify, which is still under investigation by the European Commission, among others. The ELTE team successfully defended Apple and Spotify in front of a jury that included some of the world’s most famous competition lawyers.

In doing so, the Hungarian law students reached the top of the world in the field of competition law after the previous World Championship and European Championship titles in international law.

The team members are law students Andor Sereb, Christoph Chselec, Daniel Ballault-Schulz, Laurent Telecki and Monica Pape, Associate Professor at ELTE ÁJK, and Balint Bassola, a competition law specialist, participated in their training. Student preparation was supported through a Ministry of Justice tender to improve the quality of legal training.
