Jessup International Moot Court Information Session
This event is in the past.
Jessup is the world's largest moot court competition, with participants from roughly 700 law schools in 100 countries and jurisdictions. 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.
Wayne Law's team is historically competitive, both at the regional competition held in Chicago each February and in the International Rounds held in Washington, D.C. each year later in the spring.
Participation requires that students enroll in International Law their 2L fall semester and complete the required number of hours of preparation to earn 1 credit hour in the fall and winter semesters. In the fall semester, we focus on the written briefs, and the spring semester is devoted to oral arguments, all concerning the detailed problem released each summer.
If you are interested in trying out for the Jessup International Moot Court Team, please attend this informational meeting. We will share details about the requirements for the team and specifics about try-outs happening this weekend.
