  • The Inter-American Human Rights Moot Court Competition is a unique trilingual (English, Portuguese, and Spanish) competition established to train law students how to use the Inter-American human rights legal system as a legitimate forum for redressing human rights violations. The 19th Annual Competition will take place from May 18-23, 2014 in Washington, DC and the theme of the Competition is Human Rights and Persons with Disabilities and International Human Rights Law. Since its inception in 1995, the yearly Competition has trained over 2500 students and faculty participants from over 252 universities throughout 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. To learn more about the Competition, please visit the website.
