About the Competition

The Competition was established to train attorneys on how to use the Inter-American human rights legal system as a legitimate forum for redressing human rights violations. The Competition requires students to argue the merits of a hypothetical case written on a cutting-edge topic currently being debated within the Inter-American human rights legal system. All student team members must be enrolled in a Juris Doctor (JD) degree program or its international equivalent to participate as a team. The oral round sessions occur in May, in Washington, DC.
