The University of Baltimore School of Law’s Inter-American Court of Human Rights moot court team, composed of students Kari Lee and Shaneel Myles, and coached by UB alumnae Julianne Montes de Oca, J.D ’13, and Hayley Tamburello, J.D. ’13, won the award for the best brief in English at the Inter-American Court of Human Rights moot court competition on May 25 at the American University Washington College of Law in Washington, D.C. UB also was represented by Associate Professor¬†Nienke Grossman, who served as a judge in the final round of the oral competition for the first time.

“For the first time in the 23-year history of the competition, the case was about gender-based violence in a fictitious Latin American country and what states must do to ensure that they prevent, investigate and punish it appropriately, and consistent with their obligations under the relevant international instruments,” Prof. Grossman reports, noting that 90 teams from around the world participated.
