The Jessup Moot Court Team is a co-curricular class in which students prepare for and compete in the The Philip C. Jessup International Law Moot Court Competition (aka Jessup).
Jessup is the world's largest moot court competition, with participants from over
645 law schools in 95 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.
Participation in Jessup is open to 2Ls and 3Ls. Preparing for and participating in the competition begins early in the fall semester and continues until mid-spring. Students participating in Jessup sign up for a one-credit, graded class in the fall and spring semester of that year. Jessup students must have successfully completed or be currently enrolled in International Law.
