Since it was establishment in 2002, the International Criminal Court has played a very important role in fighting against international crime and establishing a unified international criminal law system. The international criminal court and the China University of Political Science and Law has been hosting the international Criminal Court Trial competition in mainland china since 2012,with the aim of promoting the understanding and research of the International Criminal Court. In 2014, the language of competition was changed from Chinese to English, which enabled the Chinese mainland's winning team to compete with the best law students from all over the world.The competition was co-hosted by the ICC and the China University of Political Science and Law, with 23 teamsfrom mainland China including Peking University, Tsinghua University, RenminUniversity of China,China Foreign Affairs University and Shanghai Jiao Tong University participating in it,,and it was the largest number of teams in its history.
