Congratulations to University of Oxford Nelson Mandela World Human Rights Moot Competition Team!

by | Jul 28, 2017

The University of Oxford, participating for the first time in the competition, finished second in the oral rounds of the Nelson Mandela World Human Rights Moot Court Competition held in Geneva in July 2017. The Moot Competition is organized jointly by the Centre for Human Rights at the University of Pretoria and the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights. The Mandela Moot applies international human rights law, including both the general instruments and bodies of the UN system and the three regional systems of Africa, Europe and the Americas.

In the final results, Oxford finished second out of the 36 teams. Our team members, Tsvetelina van Benthem and Weiran Zhang, both finished in the top 10 individual oralists, Tsvetelina finishing 6th and Weiran 3rd overall.

Congratulations to the whole team on their hard work and success!
