OAU Law Students Wins African Moot Court Competition



Representatives of the Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU) Law Faculty won the Africa Regional Round of the Manfred Lachs Space Law Moot Court Competition held in South Africa.
The competition, which was based on a hypothetical space law dispute before the International Court of Justice; a “Case Concerning Planetary Defense.” took place in Pretoria with many African universities participating.

The Manfred Lachs Space Law Moot Court Competition yearly presents a unique opportunity for African students to engage in matters of public international law of contemporary relevance to outer space and allows law students interact in a unique forum for intellectual and cultural exchange.

The OAU team will now represent Africa at the World Finals of the competition during the International Astronautical Congress (IAC), in Jerusalem, Israel between 12th and 16th October, 2015.
The competition is in its fourth year now with OAU winning the first and third editions previously.
