16th Inter-American Human Rights Moot Court Competition

Monday, May 23, 2011
American University Washington College of Law, Room 603
4801 Massachusetts Avenue, NW, Washington, DC

This is the only trilingual (English, Spanish, Portuguese) moot court competition based on the Inter-American human rights legal system. Students argue the merits of a hypothetical case based on a cutting-edge topic currently being debated within the system. During the week-long event, over 150 students will participate in oral round sessions judged by local and international attorneys. In addition, students will visit local and international institutions, and network with WCL faculty, local human rights attorneys, and members of the diplomatic corps and other long-time supporters of the Competition. The week culminates with the highly anticipated and well-attended Final Round. Round viewing is open to the public. For more information, visit www.wcl.american.edu/hracademy/mcourt/
