202231st Christof Heyns African Human Rights Moot Court Competition 
British University in Egypt 
22 - 29 July 2022
Cairo, Egypt


The Christof Heyns 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. The Competition continuously prepares new generations of lawyers to argue cases of alleged human rights violations before the African Court.

Since its creation in 1992, 150 universities from 50 African countries have taken part in this permanent fixture on the Africa legal education calendar. The Moot has been a catalyst for the establishment of the leading programmes in the field of human rights teaching and research in Africa. In 2021, the 30th edition of the Moot Court Competition was hosted at Stellenbosch University, South Africa. The event which marked the 30th anniversary of the moot bright together for the first time a hybrid approach to mooting and cultural immersion through the new way of life during the Covid-19 Pandemic.

In 2022, the Moot Court Competition will be hosted by the British University in Egypt. The Hypothetical case will tackle issues relating to internet intermediary liability in addition to climate change and human trafficking.
