The Hong Kong Human Rights Moot was first launched in 2010 seeking to raise awareness amongst law students of human rights issues relevant to Hong Kong. On 24 March 2018, CUHK Law and Vidler & Co Solicitors organised the final round of the 7th Hong Kong Human Rights Moot with Mr. Joe Middleton of Doughty Street Chambers in London, Professor Christopher Gane, Dean of CUHK Law, and Professor Johannes Chan SC, Professor of Law and former Dean of HKU Faculty of Law attending as the moot judges.
This year, the two finalist teams, including Michael LEUNG Hoi Ming and Joshua YEUNG King Lun of CUHK, and Noah CHUNG King Hei and Chiselle KAM Wing Chi of HKU, argued a moot question relating to prisoners’ rights concerning the monitoring of prisoner’s legal correspondence with their solicitors and disproportionate use of solitary confinement. Noah CHUNG King Hei and Chiselle KAM Wing Chi won the competition and Joshua YEUNG King Lun took the trophy for Best Oralist.
CUHK Law student Joshua YEUNG King Lun (middle) won the Best Oralist Award.
