“The inaugural Pro-Bono Human Rights Mooting competition of 2014 has been a privilege. Not only did it allow me to interact and befriend fellow mooters, but having had the fortune to progress to the final round, fully bolstered my capability to speak in front of a large audience on a principled and fundamental aspect that binds our modern world, Human Rights.
The moots were well organised and interesting that affirmed my legal knowledge and also broadened it. The moot judge in the final round was brilliant, as was his feedback which was unique, impartial and most of all a confirmation of my pursuit for a career at the bar.
I conclude by stating that this competition is a must for all moot lovers as it is an impeccable and enjoyable route to academic and practical success. A big thank you to the Pro-Bono society for hosting it”
