About the Competition

The African Disability Rights Moot Court Competition is a pioneering annual gathering on the continent of students and lecturers of law on the subject of disability. The moot competition was established in 2013 as part of an OSF funded project to promote disability rights awareness, education and scholarship in Southern Africa, and in Africa more broadly.

The Competition aims to prepare a new generation of lawyers to argue cases of alleged disability rights violations before the newly established African Court on Human and Peoples’ Rights, which is operational since 2008. The programme is organised each year by the Centre for Human Rights, and is held at the University of Pretoria.

This year, participants will argue the hypothetical case of Susan, a 16½ years old woman with disabilities and citizen of Sena who has been denied contraception and is seeking to challenge the refusal on the grounds that it violates her fundamental rights under the Constitution.

The 3rd African Disability Rights Moot Court Competition will feature two rounds: a preliminary round to be held on 2nd November and a final round to be held on 4th November 2015.

All law faculties in Africa are invited to attend.

The organisers look forward to welcoming all the teams to Pretoria.

First Southern African Disability Rights Moot Court Competition
4 - 6 November 2013

On 4 and 6 November 2013 the first Southern African Disability Rights Moot Court Competition was held as part of a Centre-hosted conference on the rights of persons with disabilities in Africa.

Participants had to argue the hypothetical case of Fefe, a 20 year old woman with disabilities and citizen of Thutoland who was forced to undergo an abortion due to the fact that her unborn child would have been born with Down syndrome. The Abortion Code of Thutoland which provides for these measures in case of such a pregnancy was challenged by the applicants in the case, the NGO Hope for Thutoland. In the preliminary rounds competition was strife and arguments were heard by the various faculty representatives of the universities.

Judges:

During the final round on the 6th of November, the two opposing teams made their final submissions in front of a panel of distinguished legal scholars and practitioners such as Justice Zak Yacoob (Former Justice of the Constitutional Court), Judge Monica Mbaru (Judge of the High Court of Kenya), Professor Francisco Bariffi (Mar del Plata University, Argentina), Ms Orquidea Massarongo (Representative, Eduardo Mondlane) and Ms Tirza Leibowitz (Open Society Initiative).

After two days of rigorous competition the University of Zambia emerged as the overall winners with Midlands State University being declared as the runners up.
