Inter-American Human Rights Moot Court Competition

Written on a cutting-edge topic currently debated within the Inter-American system, the hypothetical case operates as the basis of the competition, and students argue the merits of this case by writing legal memoranda and preparing oral arguments for presentation in front of human rights experts acting as the Inter-American Court of Human Rights. The Competition is organized by the Academy on Human Rights and Humanitarian Law of American University’s Washington College of Law.
