RAU Team Goes Forward in Nelson Mandela World Human Rights Moot Court Competition
 
The team of law students from Russian-Armenian University passed the pre-final round of the Nelson Mandela World Human Rights Moot Court Competition. Arthur Gulyan, a 3rd year student in Law, and Lilit Martirosyan, a Master’s student in Law will present RAU at the Palais des Nations in Geneva, Switzerland from 18 to 21 July 2017.
 
The competition is annually organized by the University of Pretoria Faculty of Law's Centre for Human Rights with the assistance of the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights.
 
This moot court competition is about arguing hypothetical cases during international human rights law court proceedings for practice. In the first round, we were presented with a hypothetical case and had to submit a written memorial, which was judged by international law experts. The competition ends with the final round, an oral argument in a mock court”, clarified Arthur Gulyan.
 
5 teams from each of the 5 UN regions were selected based on their submitted memorials. Besides Armenia, teams from Belarus, the Czech Republic and Ukraine made it to next round in the Eastern Europe group. “We got in along with such universities as Yale and Oxford, and much of it is thanks to our coach Mr. Edgar Meyroyan”, mentioned Arthur.
