The 2019 ICC Moot Court Team
Franziska Hoguth, Nils Lennart Stahnke, Tobias Weiß, Max Stötzel, Aline Sager
Franziska Hoguth graduated from Georg-Büchner-Gymnasium Düsseldorf in 2016. As a student she spent half a year in England. In 2016 she moved to Beijing where she worked as an au pair and lived with a Chinese family. Spending time abroad taught her to embrace challenges and also sparked her interest in international law. After enrolling at the University of Bonn in 2017, she still takes weekly Chinese classes at Confucius Institute Bonn. As part of the 2019 ICC Moot Court team she hopes to improve her practical advocacy skills and learn about the application of ICL to current political problems.
Aline Sager graduated from Max-Planck-Gymnasium Rüsselsheim in 2016 at the age of 17. During her high school years she spent ten months at the international boarding school Andrews Osborne Academy in Willoughby, Ohio, USA, where she was able to improve her English skills and got to know many different cultures. In particular, the Chinese culture caught her interest which is why she was part of an international exchange program in Beijing for a couple of weeks in 2016. Aline enrolled in law studies at the University of Bonn in 2016 and passed her intermediate exam after two semesters.
Nils Lennart Stahnke grew up in Eutin where he graduated from Johann-Heinrich-Voss-Schule in 2015. He enrolled in law studies in 2016 and rapidly developed interest in both economics and criminal law. Therefore, Nils chose “companies, capital market and taxes” as his specialist area of studies and started working as a student research assistant in the department of tax criminal law and white collar crime at the law firm Flick Gocke Schaumburg. In his spare time he practices rowing in the University Team.
Max Stötzel graduated from Gymnasium Netphen in 2016. After gathering first experiences during an internship at a court in Siegen he started studying law in Bonn in 2016. He passed his intermediate exams after the second semester and developed a strong interest in criminal law and international law. From October 2018 he will work as a student assistant at the “Käte Hamburger Kolleg” in Bonn. He is looking forward to enhancing his legal English skills and participating in an international competition.
Tobias Weiß is a law student at the University of Bonn since April 2017. His interest for international stems from his participation in a Model United Nations simulation in Bonn, Warsaw and New York. Furthermore, he is an active member of the local university chapter of Amnesty International. Tobias is eager to apply both experiences to the ICC Moot Court. Since May 2018 he has been working with Prof. Talmon at the Institute of Public International Law as a research assistant. He holds a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science and Psychology.
