The most relevant questions and the following answers will be published here for the benefit of all participants. The identity of the person/team posing the question will not be revealed. Please keep your questions short and to the point.
Clarification questions to unclear passages of the negotiation topic, if such exist, can be posed until March 1, 2014.
Q: How do we pre-register for Copenhagen Competition?
A: You pre-register by sending an email to email@example.com. Please state which university you are entering and list the name, title and contact information of the principal contact person of the team. We prefer to limit our communication with the entered teams to one person to avoid confusion.
Q: It is difficult for us to recruit either a law student or a "hard" science student to our team. May we participate in the competition with a team of only law students or only students from "hard" sciences?
A: No, your team must consist of minimum 1 law student and 1 "hard" science student. However, you do not need to give us the final team composition until the final registration on 1 May 2014. We want to make sure that all teams have flexibility in starting working on the assignment while still looking for new team members as several universities are having problems finding especially science students.
Q: When is the deadline for final registration of the team?
A: The deadline for final registration is 1 May 2014 at 12:00 om (GMT +1)
Q: How do we submit the final registration?
A: Your team contact person fill out the registration form for your team and upload your written submission at the same time.
Q: How do we submit the written submission?
A: Your team contact person upload and submit the written submission when registering the team using our registration form. The written submissions must be handed in no later than 1 May 2014, 12:00 pm (GMT +1) in one single document containing all the relevant material in one file.
Q: We are having problems uploading the written submission to the registration form. What do we do?
A: Please attach the written submission to an email and send it to Copenhagen.Competition@jur.ku.dk before the submission deadline. If this doesn't work either, please contact us and we will find a suitable solution. You still need to fill out the rest of the registration form.
Q: The rules require that at least one student competitor be in “hard science” degree program. I have one student who is enrolled in double Bachelor degree program. At the end he will graduate with a Bachelor of Law degree and Bachelor of Science degree (sustainability studies). Would it be permissible to use him as our hard science student?
A: Yes, it is permissible. Students enrolled in double Bachelor degree programs such as a Bachelor of Law degree and Bachelor of Science degree may be entered as either a law student or a “hard science” student, if they otherwise comply with the rules.
A travel plan will be sent to all teams participating in the oral round after the winners of the written round have been announced. The travel plans are based upon your requested dates, times and airports stipulated in your registration form. Please do NOT inquire about individual travel arrangements before the form is filled in and returned to the organizers and you have received your travel plan.
