UCD Masters Students take part in the 2022 Helga Pedersen Moot Court Competition

Three Masters students have taken the opportunity to take part in the 10th edition of the Helga Pedersen Moot Court Competition. The Competition provides a unique opportunity for students to experience the principles and implementation of the European Convention on Human Rights firsthand and simulates the procedures of complaints to the Strasbourg Court. The Competition is coordinated by ELSA International in partnership with The Council of Europe, The European Court of Human Rights, and the European Human Rights Association.

Ayomide Adebambo, Sarah Devaney, and Lyn Schwarzhaupt are all Masters students in Law who took the Law of the ECHR course led by Dr Marie-Luce Paris. They are interested in developing their skills and their knowledge of the ECHR system. The case they are working on is a combination of environmental law and human rights. Considering her research work in both fields, Alessandra Accogli (UCD Ad Astra PhD Candidate) is coaching the team.

We wish them all the best of luck with their submissions and during the Competition’s rounds!
