Dullah Omar Institute’s doctoral researcher, Thandeka Khoza coached UWC Moot Court team which recently won the esteemed Annual Child Law Moot Competition. The UWC Moot Team was made up of Amanda Mpedi and Kirsten Lemaine Davids, both in their third year of the LLB programme. This victory was the first in history for the UWC team.

The Annual Child Law Moot Court competition focuses on child rights and affords competitors an opportunity to tackle issues pertaining to child law and rights. 

The finals took place at the Northern Gauteng High Court in Pretoria, in 'Courtroom C', which is where the Rivonia trial took place. The bench this year had three judges: Judge President Ledwa, Judge Kollapen and Judge Neukicher. 

The Child Law Moot Competition is a competition hosted by the Centre for Child Law annually. The first competition was held in 2010 and until this year, it has always been a national competition. However, this year it was bigger and they opened it up to all universities in SADC; there were 13 teams in total.
