Current Moot Court Team

Team Picture

Lisa Kujus (21) was born in Munich and graduated from the Irmgardis-Gymnasium Cologne in 2013. She currently studies law at the University of Cologne in her 7th semester and concentrated on International and European Law as her main study. The opportunity to work internationally and with multiple languages has always appealed to her greatly and continues to contribute to Lisa’s desire to pursue a career in International Law.

In addition to her undergraduate studies, Lisa enrolled herself for the Certificate in United States’ Law and spent an Erasmus semester abroad at the Autónoma University of Madrid. Due to that, she was able to gain comprehensive knowledge of foreign legal systems. Lisa also volunteers for the Refugee Law Clinic and works as a student assistant at the Institute of Eastern European Law and Comparative Law.

By participating in the Telders International Law Moot Court 2017, she aspires to expand her knowledge in International Law as well as her rhetorical skills in pleading in front of a Court. Lisa is also looking forward to discuss highly controversial topics alongside her team members which sometimes tends to be neglected during the regular course of law studies.

 

 

Katharina Koch (20) studies law at the University of Cologne in her 5th semester. She was born in Cologne and graduated from the Norbert Gymnasium Knechtsteden in 2014. Her decision to study law was formed during her time in school when she participated in an afternoon course in which a practicing state’s prosecutor talked about the basics of the German legal system and accompanied the students to a few trials at court.

A two week student exchange program in England in 2008 was followed by a five month stay in Waitsburg, WA in the United States in 2011. During these visits Katharina developed a strong interest in different cultures and in the English language. She has been able to pursue these interests during her studies at the University in Cologne as she takes part in the CUSL-Program on US American Law. At the end of her second semester, she also started working as a student assistant at the Institute of Tax Law and in the summer of 2016 she had the opportunity to get an insight on the work of practicing lawyers in an internship at a law firm.

Katharina sees the participation in the Telders International Law Moot Court as a unique experience to work in a team with a common objective in mind. She aspires to improve her rhetorical skills and broaden her knowledge of international law.

 

 

Hanna Keller (20) studies Law at the University of Cologne in her 5th semester. She graduated from the Auguste-Viktoria-Gymnasium, Trier in 2014, where she took English bilingual classes. As she worked in France after finishing school, she is also fluent in French.

Hanna is passionate about intercultural exchange which is why she volunteered in the student led NGO AIESEC since the beginning of her studies. Being part of the AIESEC executive board in Cologne for one and half years, she was responsible for organizing internships for international students and to take care of their experience in Germany by coordinating a team of 12 people. This semester she started working as a student assistant at the Institute of Air and Space Law at the University of Cologne.

As a participant of the Telder’s Moot Court she aspires to broaden her knowledge in the field of International Law as this is a subject she wants to focus on in her further studies and possible future career. She is looking forward to the intense team work and to strengthen her rhetorical skills in the oral pleadings.

 

 

Tobias Meier (27) was born in Stolberg (Rhld.) where he graduated from Ritzefeld Gymnasium. During school he spent a year as an exchange student in Little Rock, Arkansas, USA. After that he went on to study law at the University of Cologne. There he majored in International and European Law.

Apart from studying law Tobias works for Osborne Clarke, an international law firm, as a working student. Working for a law firm with international clients has not only helped Tobias maintain and improve the language skills he acquired during his year abroad, it has also given him the opportunity to gain insights to the job of a counsellor – a role he will be playing as part of this year’s Telders International Law Moot Court.

Tobias has always enjoyed studying international law. This was one of the main reasons why he decided to apply for taking part in Telders International Law Moot Court. But, as a matter of course he cannot wait to work along with his fellow team members in order to make their participation in Telders International Law Moot Court a great success.
