In February 2011 the Palestinian Centre for Human Rights, together with UNDP and OHCHR, launched the first International Criminal Law Moot Court project in Gaza. 


In this unique pilot project, thirty law students from three Gaza based universities (Al Azhar University, Islamic University, and the University of Palestine) received expert training on international criminal law, including: the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court (ICC), case law, how to prepare written submissions, and how to present oral submissions.

International legal experts from all over the world came to Gaza and provided legal training to the coaches and students of the three participating universities.

At the end of a 6 months training period, the students of the universities competed against each other in a mock ICC trial, each university being represented by a Prosecutor and Defense team.

The success of the project was highly praised locally and internationally. Therefore, the Moot Court project in Gaza will be continued in the years to come.
