Nelson Mandela World Human Rights Moot Court Competition

Overview of Nelson Mandela World Human Rights Moot Court Competition

The 13th World Human Rights Moot Court Competition will take place at the Palais des Nations, in Geneva, Switzerland, from 3 to 16 July 2021.

The Competition is presented by the Centre for Human Rights based at the Faculty of Law, University of Pretoria, in partnership with the Academy on Human Rights, Washington College of Law, American University, and the United Nations Human Rights Council Branch (HRCB) at the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR).

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 a ‘bench’ of human rights experts.

The eight best teams proceed to the quarter-final rounds, which is presided over by judges from international courts and tribunals.

COST:

Although no registration fees are charged, participants must cover all their own costs (air tickets, accommodation, meals, and medical insurance). As participants have to cover all their costs, they are encouraged to begin fundraising as soon as possible. Donors may include embassies, the UN and EU, bar associations and law firms, corporate donors and their own universities.
