Jessup Moot in International Law
The Jessup Moot competition focuses on an international law topic. U of S College of Law students compete in the Canadian regional competition, and the winner of this competition goes on to compete with law schools from around the world. In 1991, the team from the College of Law finished first in the international competition held in Washington, D.C. In 1999, our team won an award for best memorial (written argument) at the international level.
Students selected for Jessup will receive 3 credit units which they can designate in either their first or second term. Participation in Jessup straddles both terms, beginning in September with selection of the team and receipt of the problem. The selected students work toward the Canadian Jessup moot competition which takes place in late February or early March, and changes locations annually.
