Teams from all over the Americas converge to participate in a unique moot court opportunity: an overseas competition in which students from different countries argue in English, Spanish, or Portuguese, with simultaneous translation services provided. The event is also unique in its location – the inaugural 2011 event was the first international, multi-lingual moot court competition held in South America. Tulane University Law School’s Payson Center is proud to contribute to the growth of opportunities for students to learn courtroom skills in the Americas, and to strengthen relationships between the United States and its neighbors.
About the 2013 Competition (March 6-9, 2013)
We invite all law school moot court teams to attend the 2013 groundbreaking competition, hosted by UniAndes in Bogotá, Colombia. The official competition dates are March 6-9, 2013. More information, including registration deadlines, can be found here.
The UniAndes campus is located in beautiful and dynamic Bogotá, one of the most vibrant cities in the Americas. During the last decade, it has experienced impressive urban and cultural transformations, along with fast-paced growth stimulated by the renovation of public spaces and infrastructure. The city has much to offer even the casual visitor–from spectacular geographic diversity to delicious gastronomic offerings and a myriad of cultural activities. Join us!
