The 15th Nelson Mandela World Human Rights Moot Court Competition adopts a hybrid format with the in-person final rounds scheduled to take place in Geneva, Switzerland and the preliminary virtual rounds. The schedule of the competition can be found here.

The deadline for registration and submission of memorials is 1 of May, 2022.

The memorials of registered teams will be evaluated by a team of human rights experts. The best 50 teams from the 5 UN regions will be selected to participate in the preliminary virtual rounds. The hypothetical case focuses on human rights issues and is based on the rights enshrined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and other human rights instruments.

Nelson Mandela World Human Rights Moot Court Competition is one of the largest competition for students on human rights in the world. A team of two students from each university – preferably one woman and one man (gender diversity is encouraged) – is invited to participate in the competition.
