HLS Jessup Moot Court Team Tryouts

HLS Administrative Updates 2012-09-24

The HLS Jessup International Law Moot Court team will be holding tryouts Monday 10/1 and Tuesday 10/2. To participate, candidates must submit a written application by Friday, 9/28.

Now in its 54th year, the Philip C. Jessup International Law Moot Court Competition is the world’s largest moot court competition, with participants from over 550 law schools in more than 80 countries. The Competition is a simulation of a fictional dispute between countries before the International Court of Justice, the judicial organ of the United Nations. Teams prepare oral and written pleadings arguing both the applicant and respondent positions of the case.

Thousands of law students from around the world will work all year long on this season’s Jessup Problem, which addresses the factual and legal consequences of climate change on statehood, migration, and sovereign lending.
