African Human Rights Moot Court Competition

About

The African Human Rights Moot Court Competition is the largest gathering of students, academics and judges around the theme of human rights in Africa. This annual event brings together all law faculties in Africa, whose top students argue a hypothetical human rights case as if they were before the African Court on Human and Peoples’ Rights. The Competition prepares new generations of lawyers to argue cases of alleged human rights violations before the African Court. Since its creation in 1992, 175 universities from 50 African countries have taken part in this permanent fixture on the Africa legal education calendar.
