Midlands State University, Great Zimbabwe University and Zimbabwe Ezekiel Guti University battle it out for a place in the final. Head of the ICRC mission in Zimbabwe, Chérine Pollini, congratulated all participating teams adding that IHL is at the heart of the ICRC’s work.
The competition is aimed at promoting better awareness of IHL among law students at universities in Zimbabwe, encourage students and academics to carry out research that addresses challenges facing IHL and develop student advocacy skills in an environment of friendly competition.
Great Zimbabwe University will represent Zimbabwe at the All Africa IHL Moot Court Competition in Arusha, Tanzania, in November 2019. They’ll go up against an average of ten Anglophone African universities.
Zimbabwe has won six of the last 12 editions of the regional competition in Arusha. Past participants in the competition have gone on to be amongst the top advocates and lawyers in Zimbabwe’s legal community while others have become part-time academics teaching IHL in Zimbabwe."
