Third National Schools Moot Court Competition

The Universities of Pretoria, Venda, the Western Cape, CLASI at the University of Cape Town and the Departments of Justice and Constitutional Development and Basic Education, the SA Human Rights Commission and the Foundation for Human Rights will be presenting the third annual National Schools Moot Court Competition for senior learners (grade 11 and 12 in 2013) in all secondary schools in SA this year, says a report on the Legalbrief Today site.

The competition is aimed at creating greater awareness of the SA Constitution and the values that it embodies. The best nine submissions in each of the nine provinces will be identified and the selected learners will be invited to participate in person in the provincial oral rounds, in the nine provinces, in May and June 2013. The best four teams from each province will then participate in the national oral rounds in Pretoria in August 2013.

The two winning teams with the highest scores will compete against each other to determine an overall winning team in the final round in August 2013. For more details on the competition, please see www.up.ac.za/law. Alternatively contact the organiser, Cherryl Botterill, at cherryl.botterill@gmail.com for more information.
