Philip C. Jessup International Law Moot Court Competition





Now in its 50th year, the Philip C. Jessup International Law Moot Court Competition is the world's largest moot court competition, with participants from over 500 law schools in more than 80 countries. The competition is a simulation of a fictional dispute between countries before the International Court of Justice, the judicial organ of the United Nations. A team from each participating school is required to prepare oral and written pleadings arguing both the applicant and respondent positions of the case.

Thousands of law students from around the world will work all year long on this season's Jessup Problem, which will address the power and authority of the International Court of Justice and other important international law issues. Most students must first compete in national and regional competitions (mostly held in January-March) to earn the right to advance to the world championship Shearman & Sterling International Rounds held every spring in Washington, D.C. The 2009 Shearman & Sterling International Rounds, which will mark the 50th Anniversary of the Jessup Competition, will be held March 22-28, 2009.

About a month to decide whether I will joint the moot court competition, finally I've decided to join it, and i will have another busy life again. I have waited to see if i am eligible or not, but there is only a way to be eligible is I have register a Master Degree, LLM.

Recently, I'm working at the Canadia Bank as a legal officer, but sooner or later i'm moving to public sector - the ECCC or any NGOs. Meanwhile I'm going to do some extra volunteer job as a teaching assistance of international criminal law. The most important part for this year, i'm going to do another competition, ISLA.
