Jessup International Law Moot Court Team
Sponsored by the International Law Students Association and the American Society of International Law, the Jessup International Law Moot Court Competition looks at international issues. Students argue as if they are before the International Court of Justice in The Hague, Netherlands. Among recent topics: expropriation, immunity, standing, and whether an obligation exists to admit a country into a multi-state union; whether a multinational corporation's decision to stop vaccine trials in one of its manufacturing host countries violated the country's sovereignty. Students from more than 50 countries participate, with winners of regional rounds advancing to national rounds. National winners advance to the final international competition held in Washington, D.C. Students who participate in this program need to have completed or be enrolled in one of the following two courses: International Business Transactions or International Law and Practice.
