Register for The Christof Heyns African Human Rights Moot Court Competition!
The Christof Heyns 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 continuously prepares new generations of lawyers to argue cases of alleged human rights violations before the African Court.
In 2023, the Christof Heyns Moot competition will be hosted by Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, Kumasi, Ghana. The hypothetical case will address issues relating to corruption, sexual minorities rights and harmful practices. The Christof Heyns African Human Rights Moot Court Competition will be held in English, French, Portuguese and Arabic.
Since its creation in 1992, the Law Faculties of 175 universities from 50 African countries have participated in this essential event on the African university calendar. The Competition has played an invaluable role in establishing the most important programs in the field of human rights education and research in Africa.
