The Centre for Human Rights is closely linked to the University College Association for Mooters (UCAM), a society established in 2013 to promote moot courts in the law school. UCAM is a student-run society with an annual cabinet appointed by the faculty supervisors. UCAM has a strong commitment to remain inclusive and gender-sensitive. At least one faculty supervisor of the society is a female and students from all over the university are able to join UCAM.
The first moot court competition at University College Lahore took place in 2013, under the American Bar Association – Rule of Law Initiative’s project, Strengthening the Rule of Law: Promoting Due Process and Fair Trial Standards in Pakistan’s Anti-Terrorism Courts. The moot court culture in Pakistan developed in the coming years and UCAM has played a pivotal role in this, having hosted six nationwide competitions, one international competition, one arbitration competition and the first Pakistan national rounds for Philip C. Jessup Moot Court Competition in 2020.
