2015 Competition

The 20th Anniversary edition of the Competition was held from May 17-22, 2015 and attracted over 600 participants from 36 countries and territories. We welcomed 96 teams, over 200 judges, 60+ observers, and 20 volunteers, representing 38 countries and territories stretching across five continents. Participating schools were largely from the Americas but also from Angola, Belgium, France, India, Russia, and Switzerland. Though we spoke many languages and came from different backgrounds, the focus of our conversation was universal: the promotion and protection of human rights and their legal frameworks.
