Jessup Moot Court

The Philip C. Jessup International Law Moot Court Competition is the world’s largest and most prestigious moot court. It was first held at Harvard in 1960. Today, participants from over 645 law schools in more than 95 countries participate in the annual moot. The competition is a simulation of a fictional dispute between countries before the International Court of Justice, the judicial organ of the United Nations. Each team prepares oral and written pleadings, arguing both the applicant and respondent positions of the case.
