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.

Please see below for all information regarding the Human Rights Moot.

Team registration

You can register a team here. Individual team members can be provided to us at a later stage, after registration.

Contact the head of competitions in your law faculty or law student society who will then register you with us. You may contact us directly, however, as there is a registration fee of $500 + GST, it is best to liaise with your university to organise funding for this. Please email Janice Hugo if you have any questions regarding registration.
