Froriep acted as official sponsor for student moot court competition
31 July 2017
Froriep acted as official sponsor for the Lucerne Academy for Human Rights Implementation, which took place between July 3-21, 2017. The university of Luzern puts on this special program each year, and over the course of three weeks students from all over the world focus entirely upon human rights law. They take classes and participate in a hypothetical appellate brief and Moot Court Competition, as well as lunchtime seminars and visits to the United Nations in Geneva and the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg.
A key aspect of the program is that it helps students practice skills that they will need in real-life advocacy for human rights. The Best Overall Participant in the Moot Court Competition receives an internship with a Human Rights organisation in Geneva, Switzerland. The program also offers students a rich, diverse cultural experience, as participants come from all corners of the globe to learn how to advocate for human rights.
