Human Rights Moot

The Castan Centre Human Rights Moot is the only one of its kind in the country, providing the next generation of young lawyers the chance to hone their knowledge of human rights.

The competition is based on Victoria’s Charter of Human Rights and Responsibilities Act and challenges students run human rights arguments in front of experienced jurists in one of only two Australian jurisdictions with comprehensive human rights laws. The competition is open to all Australian law schools.

Due to staff turnover in the Castan Centre, we will not be hosting a human rights moot competition in 2022. We will notify interested parties as 2023 plans become clear. If you are interested in being part of future moot competitions please email
