Institute of International and European Law
The Philip C. Jessup International Law Moot Court Competition, also known as the Jessup, is the oldest, largest and most prestigious moot court competition in the world, attracting participants from almost 700 law schools in more than 90 countries in recent years.
Teams of law students compete against one another through the presentation of oral and written pleadings to address timely issues of public international law in the context of a hypothetical legal dispute between nations. After the Compromis is released in September/October 2018, the participating teams begin researching and preparing arguments for both sides of the dispute, drafting and editing written pleadings, called memorials, and practicing oral presentations. The whole competition is conducted in English. During the German National Rounds in spring 2019, teams will argue alternately as Applicant and Respondent against competing teams before a panel of judges, simulating a proceeding before the International Court of Justice. The best teams qualify for the International Rounds held in Washington, D.C.

Your application should be in English and include a short letter of motivation, a CV and a recent academic transcript. The deadline for applications is 25th June 2018.
