The Philip C. Jessup International Law Moot Court Competition is the oldest and largest international moot competition in the world, focusing on public international law with participants from 700 law schools in 100 countries and jurisdictions.
“The case this year is very exciting and includes issues ranging from a global pandemic through to issues of diplomatic asylum, self-judging clauses and terrorism using civilian aircrafts. Needless to say, the case is riddled with some of the most puzzling and topical issues of contemporary international law and is box of treasure for any law student interested in public international law. Participation in Jessup has been an extremely enriching albeit challenging experience. No course, book, or lecture can teach you what hands-on experience in a moot can,” said Seema Murtuza, who last year participated in Willem C. Vis International Commercial Arbitration Moot Competition and received the best oralist award in Pre-Moot at Minsk.
