The Oxford Law Faculty invites applications for the position in Oxford’s team in the 9th Nelson Mandela World Human Rights Moot Court Competition. More information about the moot can be found here.

The 9th Nelson Mandela World Human Rights Moot Court Competition, is due to be held from 18 to 21 July 2017, at the Palais des Nations, in Geneva, Switzerland. The Competition is presented by the Centre for Human Rights, based at the University of Pretoria, with the support of the United Nations Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights in Geneva, in collaboration with the Regional Office for Southern Africa of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (ROSA).

The Competition is open to both undergraduate and master’s degree law students. A team will consist of two students. The organisers of the moot state that the team should “preferably” include one man and one woman. In the preliminary rounds the students submit heads of argument for a hypothetical case, which are assessed by a panel of experts. The best 5 teams from each UN region are then invited to participate in the pre-final and final rounds of the Competition in Geneva.

Applications should consist of a brief cover letter and CV and should be sent to the Graduate Mooting Co-ordinator, Ana Bobić (mooting@law.ox.ac.uk) by 5pm on Monday 5 December 2016. Please feel free to contact Ana Bobić with any questions.

Oxford’s participation in the 9th Nelson Mandela World Human Rights Moot Court Competition is kindly sponsored by the newly-established Bonavero Institute of Human Rights.
