2021 Inter-American Human Rights Moot Court Competition

May  23- 28, 2021

"Human Rights and States of Emergency: Unexpected Crisis and New Challenges"

The Competition is a unique trilingual (English, Portuguese, and Spanish) event established to train law students how to use the Inter-American human rights legal system as a legitimate forum for redressing human rights violations. Since its inception in 1995, it has trained over 4800 students and faculty participants from over 360 universities from the Americas and beyond. 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.
