The Institute for Law and Public Policy under the auspice of the Association of Lawyers of Russia and with the support of the Venice Commission of the Council of Europe completed the Fifth All-Russian Moot Court Competition on Constitutional Justice for students Crystal Goddess of Justice.

The case which was brought before the court this year was called Planet of Apes or Case of Privilege of Witness.

27 teams were registered this year, but only 13 of them could prepare procedural documents for experts’ evaluation. The qualified and independent experts in constitutional law chose the four best teams: Urals State Law University, Tyumen State University, Dostoevsky Omsk State University, Siberian Federal State University. 

The selected teams were granted the right to take part in the semi-final rounds held on November 19, 2015 at Law Faculty, St. Petersburg State University. Only the two top teams at the end of the first day were able to move to the final round: the representatives of Urals State Law University and Tyumen State University.

On November 20, 2015 the final day of the Competition was opened at Law Faculty, St. Petersburg State University. The jury of five experts had to assess the performance of the participants and to determine the winner. Despite the sufficient originality and persuasiveness of speeches presented by finalist teams, the team of Urals State Law University (consisted of Chirninov A., Belova A., Alaskarova A., Pilikin M., Serkova Y., Smetanin N. with trainers – Salikov M.S., Belyh M.L.) was evaluated as the most prepared and high-qualified.
