This academic year, Riga Graduate School of Law (RGSL) students will take part in three international Moot court competitions - Philip C. Jessup International Law Moot Court Competition, Willem C. Vis International Commercial Arbitration Moot Competition and Levan Alexidze Moot Court in Georgia.
In this post we want to introduce the team who this year will compete in the oldest and largest public international law moot competition in the world - Philip C. Jessup International Law Moot Court. RGSL team members – Law&Diplomacy bachelor programme students Markuss Kozlinskis, Y3, Artemijs Pakula, Y2, Sabīne Stirniņa, Y3, Kristofers Kalniņš – Liberis, Y3 - will be among the 700 law schools from 100 countries and jurisdictions to take part in this competition. The team’s couch – RGSL Lecturer Ieva Miļūna.
Last year, RGSL Jessup team was one of 168 teams out of 590 to proceed to the Advanced rounds, the only team from the Baltic states’ universities.
“With hope and enthusiasm I look forward to this year’s Jessup moot court competition. The gathered team and tutors are looking forward to develop our knowledge and skills to perform as well if not better than previously. Last year’s experience and this year’s case will indeed make Jessup not only insightful but also fun,” says Kristofers Kalniņš-Liberis, who, along with Markuss Kozlinskis were also on the last year’s RGSL Jessup team.
We wish our team the best of luck in the preparation work ahead!
