Moot Court Summer School 2020
Rule of Law has always been a hotly debated and controversial topic.
Yet, it is commonly agreed that "Access to Justice" is one of the key requirements for robust and healthy Rule of Law in any society.
"Access to justice is a basic principle of the rule of law. In the absence of access to justice, people are unable to have their voice heard, exercise their rights, challenge discrimination or hold decision-makers accountable."
- United Nations and the Rule of Law
In this summer school, we will be working with tertiary institutions, professional bodies, law firms and legal practitioners to deliver weeks full of exciting and stimulating programmes to show how "Access to Justice" can ensure that justice does prevail for those who are at the fringe of the society.
