 Moot court winners to Geneva

Elikem Azumah and Ashley Bruce, two University College Roosevelt students, have been admitted to the pre-finals of the Nelson Mandela World Human Rights Moot Court Competition in Geneva in July. 

A first round of the moot court was held in the context of the course on International Human Rights, after which the two students were selected to represent the class. In Geneva, they will argue a hypothetical case on the Federal State of St Priyah and Miyah, and will be 

accompanied by Elif Durmus, PhD student within the Cities of Refuge team. The UCR/UU team is the only Dutch team admitted, as one of the 8 best teams from the Western Europe/others UN region, together with teams from Oxford, Yale Law School and the University of Strasbourg. 

The Moot Court is organized by the Office of the High Commissioner of Human Rights in Geneva together with the University of Pretoria. It is presided over by judges from international courts and tribunals. UCR congratulates the two winning candidates and supports them with a travel grant.​
