Henry Dunant Memorial Moot Court Competition Workshop

Moot-courtThe Tehran Peace Museum held an inaugural workshop on Sunday 17 May 2015, to introduce the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) Henry Dunant Memorial Moot Court Competition.


The objective of this international competition is to give participants the opportunity to simulate the experience of trying cases at the International Criminal Court (ICC). Candidates are given the choice to work on cases related to such issues as war or genocide and are able to practice trying such cases in front of the ICC judicature.


The participants in this workshop included law graduates who were able to benefit from exchanging roles in a criminal court and were able to experience what it is like to be a chairman of the court, a prosecutor, lawyers reading indictments and bills.


This workshop was attended by graduate law students who learned about the process of the competition through lectures from four former winners.
