Philip C Jessup International Law Moot Court Competition
Jessup is a public international law moot court competition in which more than 500 universities participate world-wide. The competition was established 50 years ago and is run by the International Law Students Association. The case typically involves complex issues of public international law, ranging from State responsibility to the law of sea, human rights law and environmental law. Successful teams at the UK national rounds in London go on to compete in the Shearman & Sterling international rounds, which take place every spring in Washington, DC. The undergraduate team selected to represent Oxford prepares memorials (written pleadings) and oral argument for the two parties to the dispute.
Continuing Oxford's successful record at the Jessup Moot Court Competition, a team of four-undergarduate students defeated the University of Cambridge in the UK Championship finals held on 17 February 2013 at Gray's Inn, London. Jiahui Huang bagged the award for the Best Speaker in finals.
