In the course of the week, 15 different African countries were hosted by the University of Ghana School of Law for the 27th African Human Rights Moot Court Competition.
After the prelims a few teams made it to the finals and of course, UGSOL was in there. Do we ever disappoint?
The climax was at the Auditorium of the Law Courts Complex, Accra.
The faculties of Law that made it to the finals were put in teams.
In UG’s team were University of Nairobi, Kenya and University of Mozambique.
On the other side were Université des Lagune, Côte d’Ivoire, Makarere University, Uganda and University of Pretoria, South Africa.
At the end of the session, the results accummulated from the prelims were declared in Anglophone, Francophone and Lusophone categories.
In the anglophone best memorials category, all the Ghanaian Law Faculties made us proud by sweeping the top 4 awards. Fourth place was GIMPA, preceded by UG in the third place, KNUST at the second place and then UCC at the top.
It is with much pleasure that we inform you that UG was adjudged the best team of the prelims!
And guess what? Our very own Miss Aniela Allottey was the best Anglophone orator, with Miss Keziah Engmann as the fourth best.
At the end of the finals involving the teams, the team which included UG was the runner-up. The presiding judge for the finals was Her Ladyship Gloria Akuffo.
UGSOL has once again lifted the flag of not just UG, but Ghana high!
