This year, the National Rounds of the Philipp C. Jessup International Law Moot Court Team of 2018 took place in Kiel.
The Case concerning the Egart and the Ibra treated matters of interstate arbitral awards, the legality of using unmanned marine vessels, the international obligations relating to nuclear disarmament and the legitimacy of conduct of naval warfare after authorization by the United Nations Security Coucil.
Our team consisted of Gesche Butenschön, Agata Daszko, Edith Eike and Jule Johannsen, who all accomplished preeminent milestones on behalf of Georg-August-University Göttingen, and was coached by Konstantin Gast, Torben Schlüter and Lukas Sibinski.
The team advanced into the quarterfinals, proudly embracing 6th Place overall, and achieved numerous individual awards, of those the highly sought after Best Oralist Award, likewise the Best Oralist Third Place Award as well as Best Memorials Runner-Up Award and last but certainly not least the Best Applicant Memorial Award.
We congratulate our team most warmly for attaining these achievements with such an inspiring grounded and courteous attitude.
