The 10th edition of the Nelson Mandela World Human Rights Moot Court Competition is currently holding at the human rights capital of the world – Geneva, Switzerland. The 39 teams that are competing this year at the Palais des Nations made it after an initial round of regional contest across the 5 UN regions. Brazil has six universities at this year’s World moot which is the largest number from any country. India is next with 4 universities. While Kenya and Ukraine have 3 universities each.

This year’s moot is especially significant because not only does it mark the tenth year of the competition, it also coincides with the centenary celebration of the great Nelson Mandela – the man whom the moot is named after.
