The All Africa Moot Court Competition is a tournament that brings students across the African Continent to simulate the court processes of the African Court of Human and People’s Rights.

The issues argued upon bordered on human rights issues arising from the African Human Rights Charter.

This year’s rounds were hosted by the Universite Virtuelle de Senegal and the University of Pretoria. It is the largest gathering of students around the theme of human rights in Africa.

Next year’s competition will be hosted in Stellenbosch, South Africa and is expected to see the University of Ghana ably represented.
