College of Law Ranks Third in Second National Annual Moot Court Competition


Haramaya University’s College of Law students competed and ranked third in a sixteen team national moot court competition hosted by Wollo University and Law Schools Consortium. The annual national moot court competition is the biggest in the country involving all public law schools across the nation.
From the invited sixteen teams based on pre-submitted written memorial, 8 teams were selected for the final oral litigation. Haramaya’s team was comprised of two students: Firew Kasaye and Nardos Tadesse, and their coach Daniel Esubalew who prevailed in the memorial screening and semi-final.
The national moot court competition was held in the city of Desse from December 22-24. The subject matter of the competition was ‘Regulation of Large Scale Agricultural Investment’ that has involved current and delicate issues such as: human rights, environmental protection, economic development and foreign direct investment.
Their coach, Daniel said, “The team members, Firew and Nardos, managed this demanding extracurricular commitment despite having to juggle full course loads, preparing for the upcoming national exit exam, and their managerial involvement in different clubs of the University. I am of the opinion that College of Law is exceedingly proud of their commitment to excel in advocacy.”
