Privacy is a fundamental right that is becoming increasingly important in the digital age. With the rise of technology, there is an increased risk of privacy violations, making it necessary for society to have a robust legal framework in place to protect individuals’ personal information. In recognition of the importance of privacy law, Unwanted Witness and the Public Interest Law Clinic of Makerere University have organized the second edition of a privacy moot court competition to promote education and awareness on the topic.
The upcoming Unwanted Witness Privacy Moot Court Competition is set to bring together law students around the country to argue and address contemporary issues related to privacy and personal data protection. The competition, which is designed to provide a platform for participants to showcase their legal skills and knowledge of privacy law, is scheduled to take place on the 21st and 22nd of September, 2023 at Makerere University Law School, and promises to be a highly anticipated event.
To be held over a period of two days, the competition will consist of several rounds of oral arguments and written submissions. The oral arguments will be based on a fictional case scenario, which will test participants’ legal knowledge, research skills, and advocacy abilities. The written submissions will also be based on the same scenario and will be evaluated based on their quality, accuracy, and clarity.
The final round of the competition will feature the top teams from the previous rounds and will provide an opportunity for participants to showcase their skills in front of a panel of distinguished judges. The judges, who are highly experienced privacy law practitioners, will evaluate the arguments based on their legal accuracy, persuasiveness, and presentation skills.
The final round of the competition will be the grand finale, where the top teams from the previous rounds will face off in a high-stakes argument. The winners of the competition will be determined by the panel of distinguished judges, who will evaluate the oral arguments based on their legal accuracy, persuasiveness, and presentation skills.
