Top law students argue human rights in Africa’s biggest mock trial competition | Witness Documentary

For one week, aspiring lawyers gather for the annual African Human Rights Moot Court Competition.

Competitors represent the top law schools from their respective nations as they debate a new issue each year.

In Gaborone, Botswana, the focus is on the rights of refugees. Arguments are judged by practising lawyers.

The competition for African Moot is fierce as the rising stars learn what it means to fight for their cause, country and continent.
