Philip C. Jessup International Law Moot Court Competition

Jessup is the world's largest moot court competition, with participants from roughly 700 law schools in 100 countries and jurisdictions. Teams represent fictional countries as applicant and respondent before the International Court of Justice across three stages: written memorials, national rounds (aka Jessup Russia), and international rounds.

Jessup is a test of legal excellence and the best way to amp your skills of legal writing, advocacy, time management and team work. If you aren’t afraid of a challenge and hard work, and crave a chance to shine, do Jessup.

The Jessup 2024 Problem concerns the right to political expression, statelessness, the right to a nationality, and the scope of the United Nations Security Council's authority in the pacific settlement of disputes.
