Introducing the 2019-2020 Moot Competition Teams
December 13, 2019

This fall, the Center for Human Rights and Global Justice interviewed a host of talented NYU Law students to participate in two of the most notable moot competitions in the fields of human rights and humanitarian law. The students have been studying hard this fall and will continue to do so over the winter break, leading up to the competitions next year. Learn more about the competitions and meet the teams below.

Jean-Pictet Competition

The Jean-Pictet Competition is hosted by the International Committee of the Red Cross and is a unique opportunity for students to gain in-depth and hands-on knowledge of international humanitarian law while at the same time meeting students from around the world.

This year’s team includes Fasya Addinia (LLM ’20), Noelia Gravotta (JD ’21), and Erik Woodward (JD ’20) as oralists. Camille Zhu (JD ’20) who participated in the 2019 Jean-Pictect Competition is serving as this year’s coach.

The 33rd edition of the Jean-Pictet Competition will take place from February 22-29, 2020 in Denpasar,Indonesia.

International Criminal Court Moot Court Competition

The International Criminal Court (ICC) Moot Court Competition offers a unique opportunity to gain practice in legal research, writing, and oral argument, and to learn about international criminal law, a fascinating subject that sits at the confluence of domestic criminal law, general international law, and human rights law.

This year’s team includes Amanda Fang (JD ’21), Tamara Sakijha (JD ’20), and Andrew Van Duyn (JD ’21) as oralists. Shuai Gao (LLM ’20) and Stephanie Williams (JD ’22) are providing research support. Bianca Isaias (JD ’15) and Rashmika Nedungadi (JD ’19) are coaching again this year.

For the regional rounds in March 2020, the NYU Team will represent the State of Valeria. The two highest scored teams in the regional round will advance to the finals in The Hague, to compete against qualifying teams from around the world.
