School of Law’s excellence in international Moot Court competitions underlines success in legal training

Mount Kenya University School of Law was fourth in Africa, and sixth globally in the 7th Nelson Mandela World Human Rights Moot Court competition held in Geneva, Switzerland last December.


This followed a similarly impressive performance in the Manfred Lachs Space Law Moot Court competition held in Pretoria, South Africa, earlier in the year. The institution was number three in Africa. “These successes underline our growing reputation as a centre of excellence in legal training,” says Mercy Muendo, Moot Court Co-ordinator at the MKU School of Law. At the third All Kenyan Moot Court competition hosted by Kenyatta University, the MKU School of Law won the Best Oralist Award, paving way for Aquino Ochieng, one of the students, to intern at the Kenya Human Rights Commission.


We have also been working closely with Kenya Model United Nations and this has seen us take part in the ICJ Moot Court events held annually at UN, Gigiri,” adds Ms. Muendo.
