The Cape Town Convention Academic Project (CTCAP) created the Cape Town Convention (CTCinternational moot court programme (CTC moot court) in December 2022.

The purpose of the CTC moot court is to familiarise students and judges with the CTC in the context of complex hypothetical fact patterns and to provide students with educational exercises involving these instruments in a simulated judicial setting.

The hypothetical and related materials will be modified on a jurisdictional basis, depending on the venue of the CTC moot court. The major change will be that such a venue will be the assumed country where the aircraft is registered under the Chicago Convention of 1944.

The programme will work around the world with local universities. The CTC moot court will be heard by sitting judges from their respective jurisdictions. Alternatively, the fact pattern may be used as the basis of discussion and debate among judges and/or students.
