Chicago-Kent to participate in the 2016 Inter-American Human Rights Moot Court Competition
Rebecca Charles '17 and Geoffrey Curley '17 will represent Chicago-Kent College of Law at Illinois Tech in the 2016 Inter-American Human Rights Moot Court Competition May 22 to 27 in Washington, D.C.
Held at American University Washington College of Law, the trilingual competition (English, Spanish and Portuguese) draws students from universities throughout the Americas and beyond. This year, students will argue a case involving human rights and the mining industry in a fictional Central American country. Among the volunteer judges are private attorneys, human rights practitioners, Inter-American Commission on Human Rights attorneys, and members of the diplomatic corps.
Chicago-Kent's team is coached by Professor Bartram Brown, alumni Maureen Bitonio '15 and David McKenzie '14, and attorney Adam Maxwell.
Chicago-Kent College of Law offers a Certificate Program in International and Comparative Law for J.D. students and an LL.M. Program in U.S., International and Transnational Law for international attorneys and law graduates who wish to gain a broader understanding of the American legal system and international legal issues.
