LAW ASSOCIATION FOR CRIMES ACROSS HISTORY
Welcome to LACAH! We organize international and regional mock trial tournaments with self-written cases themed around international law and crimes across history.
"LACAH is impressive because it is international and it is student-based, that's what really attracted me about this because I truly believe students do a better job when they do it rather than having the adults tell them what to do."
