2022 Inter-American Human Rights Moot Court Competition: American University Washington College of Law’s Academy on Human Rights and Humanitarian Law is pleased to invite JD/law students from all Law schools around the world to register as teams in the 2022 Inter-American Human Rights Moot Court Competition. The Competition is a unique trilingual (English, Portuguese, and Spanish) event established to train law students around the world on how to use the Inter-American human rights legal system as a legitimate forum for redressing human rights violations. Since its inception in 1995, it has trained over 4900 students and faculty participants from over 365 universities from the Americas and beyond. A hypothetical case operates as the basis of the Competition. 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. The 2022 Competition will be held in person from 23 – 27 May 2022. The hypothetical case focuses on “Climate Change and Human Rights: Impacts, Responsibilities, and Opportunities” was written by Astrid Puentes Riaño, who served as co-executive director of the Inter-American Association for Environmental Defense (AIDA) and who has over twenty years of experience in environmental protection, human rights, and climate justice.
