The Jessup International Moot Court Competition is the largest moot court competition in the world. Nearly 600 law schools representing over 100 countries participate each year. Written and oral arguments are presented to a simulated International Court of Justice, the UN body which hears disputes between sovereign states.


The team is coached by Gilbert Sison, JD 2000, and advised by Professor Leila Sadat, former Chairwoman of the International Law Students Association that administers the competition and the co-author of three Jessup problems.”
