Nelson Mandela World Human Rights Moot Court

Unfortunately we will not be participating in the 2021 Edition of the Nelson Mandela World Human Rights Moot Court - Looking forward to the 2022 Edition (information will be published in fall 2021)

The Nelson Mandela World Human Rights Moot Court Competition was established to train law students to use various human rights systems. Written on a cutting-edge topic currently debated, the hypothetical case operates as the basis of the competition. As an attorney representing both the respondent state and the applicant, you will argue the merits of your case by writing two memos and preparing your oral pleadings in front of a panel of eminent human rights experts at the Palais des Nations in Geneva, acting as an international court of justice.

Come to the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights and excel in the Olympic Games of human rights. Join our team of two students and learn all the essential skills you need for both the bar exam and your professional career at large.

Unilu students will receive up to 18 ECTS credit points for successful participation and you can make your work count as your Master’s thesis.
