Rhodes law students, Sazi Ntuli and Michelle du Toit, will represent the university at the annual African Human Rights Moot Court Competition in Zambia next month. The competition provides a platform for students from all over the world to showcase their case-arguing skills with an emphasis on human rights cases. Ntuli says he is delighted to have been chosen and that it was not easy making it through to this level. "All LLB final year students participated in the Moot competition and we argued points of law in front of Grahamstown High Court judges like Judge Glenn Goosen,dvocate Ntsikelelo Sandi and Craig Renaud," Ntuli explains. "In the end there were four students left from all the final year LLB students. I was top of the four and my partner in the competition, Michelle, came behind me in second place." The case that won them their places was that of a woman who wanted to develop her property. However, there was a complainant who felt that the development would have an adverse effect the environment. Ntuli said the competition is not about whether you win the case or not. He said it is about the skill you demonstrate during the proceedings and the arguments you make. "The judges are looking at how you perform in your case, the way you handle it," said Ntuli. The 23-year-old said this is a great opportunity for them to go out and test their skills against students from other countries. "I am very proud of this achievement and it's a great opportunity to represent my institution and my country. "We have been told that there will be countries even from outside the African continent there. "This is an eye opener for me and I am looking forward to competing," said Ntuli.
