1 July, 2016
Law Students Association
The Castan Centre is a world-renowned academic, human-rights based centre which fights to create a fairer and more just world whereby human rights are respected and protected, giving individuals the right to live in freedom and with dignity.
The Centre is named in commemoration of the late Ron Castan AM QC, a passionate advocate of human rights.
The Castan Centre Human Rights Moot Competition is held annually and run by Monash University to provide students the opportunity to not only further their legal advocacy skills but also to broaden their knowledge of Human Rights Law and its importance.
Each team will be required to appeal and respond to various human rights issues that are regulated under the Victorian Charter of Human Rights and Responsibilities Act.
If you have a strong passion for social justice, human rights and mooting, and would like to participate in the competition, please email Sakire at firstname.lastname@example.org to express your interest.
Please email Sakire by 1 July.
Two teams of three members each team.
