Moot Court Competition in Sustainable Development Law - FGV Rio

Moot Court Competition in Sustainable Development Law
Before the Inter-American Court of Human Rights 2011
Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

March, 18th-20th, 2011

Welcome to the Moot Court Competition in Rio de Janeiro!
1st Annual Competition: March 18th-20th 2011
The Sustainable Development Moot Court Competition was established to train attorneys on how to use the Inter-American human rights system as a forum for addressing human rights violations – broadly defined -- in the Americas and the Caribbean.
In a Moot Court Competition law students take part in simulated court proceedings as if conducted in the Inter-American Court human rights system, which includes drafting briefs and participating in oral arguments.
The Competition requires students to argue a hypothetical case written on a topic currently being debated within the Inter-American Court of Human Rights. The 2011 hypothetical case talks about the implications and consequences of hydroelectric power plant construction on indigenous people and also raises other human and environmental rights questions. 
This Competition is distinctive in that it will be held in three languages with simultaneous translation (English, Spanish, and Portuguese).
Teams write and file their briefs for their respective parties in mid-January.
