ABOUT THE JESSUP
The Philip C. Jessup International Law Moot Court Competition is the world’s largest moot court competition, with participants from roughly 700 law schools in 100 countries. It provides law students with the opportunity to prepare written and oral arguments on complex issues of public international law involving hypothetical cases before the International Court of Justice.
The Canadian Division Qualifying Tournament has been hosted by a Canadian law school annually since 1973. Teams from every Canadian law school, both civil and common law, are eligible to compete. Typically the winning two team(s) move on to the White & Case International Rounds, held each spring in Washington, D.C., see the Global Jessup website for more details.
