More about this competition, please visit http://www.ilsa.org/jessup/index.php, Cambodian Jessup Team, www.jessupcambodiateam.blogspot.com

We are the Cambodian Jessup Team of Royal University Law and Economics.  The five of us -Kimsan Soy,Thirith Vireak, Sonita Khun, Nearirath Sreng, Panha Piseth- were  selected to represent the university Royal University of Law and Economics (Rule) through a competition judged by people with the Extraordinary Chambers in the Courts of Cambodia, the international court set up to prosecute Khmer Rouge leaders for crimes committed between 1975 and 1979.

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
