International Moot Court (Jessup)

The Law School’s team for the Phillip C. Jessup International Law Moot Court Competition has enjoyed much recent success, consistently winning both memorial and oralist awards.

The Phillip C. Jessup International Law Moot Court Competition is an international moot court competition with participating teams from over 500 law schools in 80 countries. The moot competition is set before the International Court of Justice, which is the principal judicial organ of the United Nations, and is based on a fictional dispute between countries.

Every year the Law School’s team competes in a regional round. Winners at the regional level advance to the international rounds, which are held in Washington, D.C. For more information on the competition, please visit http://www.ilsa.org/jessup/.

The Alabama Law Jessup faculty advisor is Professor Dan Joyner.
