All rise for the International Court of Justice committee, where we will shed light on the dark corners of the LaGrand case. This is a saga of international conflict, legal breakthroughs, and jurisdictional puzzles. In 1999, two German brothers faced the death penalty in Arizona, despite Germany’s frantic attempts to stop this. But was this a violation of their rights? The brothers may have passed on, but their case still lives on. As delegates in this committee, you will examine legal landmarks, make your case, and weigh law and morality.
You will also encounter a storm of challenges such as snap judgments, hidden agendas, and testimonial falsifications that will challenge your legal mettle. So, come along on this quest, as we aim for justice and carve our niche in the world of international law!
