You guys are probably wondering what Ghana is hosting right?
Well, it is the trending 27th edition of the African Human Rights Moot Court Competition (AHRMCC) which is scheduled to hit the University of Ghana main campus on 7th and 8th of August, 2018.
The maiden edition of the competition began in 1992 in Harare, Zimbabwe. Since then, it has been held annually.
This year’s event was launched in November last year at the University Of Ghana School Of Law Auditorium. This would be the second time Ghana is hosting the forum.
Not only did Ghana first host the forum in 2000, but we also won the competition. We also adjudged runner-ups on two consecutive occasions (1995 and 1996). Again in 2009, Ghana won the competition in Lagos, Nigeria and came runner-ups in the 2010 edition at Cotonou. Ghana’s recent win was the 2017 edition when Mr. Kobby Afari Yeboah and Miss Sarah Gyimah brought the trophy back home from Mauritius.
The much awaited competition takes place on Tuesday 7th and Wednesday 8th of August at the School of Law, University of Ghana, at 8am each day. The finals will be held on Friday 10th at the Law Court Complex, Accra Ministries.
It is of much hope that the rains of the 2000 fortune fall on the 27th AHRMCC host.
