Chapter Summary

The important objective of the Moot is to promote the role of law and legal institutions as a method of resolving disputes.Moot is further aimed at creating a network of young African human rights lawyers, and to ensure contact between African universities, law faculties and academics, and contact between the African human rights network and global human rights networks. Two days of the Competition are devoted to the preliminary rounds, when the students argue the case twice for the applicant and twice for the respondent before panels of &t;judges&t; consisting of the lecturers of the other universities. The official languages of the Competition are English and French.
