Founded in 1959, the Philip C. Jessup International Law Moot Court Competition is an international advocacy competition in which law students present oral and written pleadings before a simulated International Court of Justice. The Jessup is the largest moot court competition in the world with more than 2,000 students from more than 500 universities competing annually. This unit is designed to prepare students for participation in the Jessup, and to develop the skills of oral advocacy more generally. Students are eligible to participate in the Jessup moot by application and selection only. Selection for the competition will be predicated upon successful completion of this unit.
