Two law students at the University of Ghana are doing their best to ensure that the university is celebrated across Africa for having one of the best law faculties on the continent.

The students are representing the university in the African Human Rights Moot Court Competition.

Nana Kweku and Dorcas Ameonu are the two legal brains who are giving the other competitors from other African countries a run for their money.

Nana and Dorcas have currently advanced to the next stage of the competition which is currently being held online due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

However, the quarter-final, semi-final and final rounds of the 30th edition of the Moot Competition will take place in person from 26 – 31 July 2021, in Stellenbosch, South Africa.

The African Human Rights Moot Court Competition is the largest gathering of students, academics and judges around the theme of human rights in Africa.

This annual event brings together all law faculties in Africa, whose top students argue a hypothetical human rights case as if they were before the African Court on Human and Peoples’ Rights.
