Humanitarian Law

In March 2014, Harvard Law School will participate in the First Annual Clara Barton International Humanitarian Law Competition, sponsored by the American Red Cross and the American Society of International Law.

The Clara Barton Competition is a simulation‐based competition that puts participants in the shoes of humanitarian law practitioners to address complex legal issues in a number of unique environments. During the three day competition, each round will present a new hypothetical case study building on the hypothetical presented in the initial brief, offering participants a dynamic and creative atmosphere in which to explore complex legal issues.

The Competition will test participants’ knowledge of international humanitarian law and public international law, as well as their ability to present, advocate, and defend legal positions with a diverse range of stakeholders in different simulated environments.

This year, Harvard will be represented by: Ashley Belyea ’14, Tess Borden ’14, and Brian Kelly ’15. The competition will be held in Washington D.C. on March 12-15, 2014.
