Nelson Mandela Moot (2016)

The Nelson Mandela World Human Rights Moot Court Competition is the largest gathering of students, academics and judges around the theme of human rights in Africa. The Competition was established in 2009 by the University of Pretoria Faculty of Law's Centre for Human Rights, with the assistance of the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights. The moot is open for all around the world. A team should consist of two students – preferably one woman and one man (gender diversity is encouraged).

The best 10 teams from each UN region are then invited to participate in the pre-final, quarter-final, semi-final and final rounds of the Competition in Geneva. Teams then have to argue the two sides of the hypothetical case, representing, alternatively, both the Applicant and the Respondent before human rights experts. The Competition is presented in English, French and in Spanish.
