International Moot Court (Jessup)
The Law School’s team for the Phillip C. Jessup International Law Moot Court Competition has enjoyed much recent success. In 07-08, the Alabama Law School team finished second overall at the Southeast Superregional and competed in the International Round in Washington DC. In 08-09, the Alabama Law team advanced to the quarter-final round of the Southeast Superregional and were awarded the prize at the Superregional for the second highest memorial score.
The Phillip C. Jessup International Law Moot Court Competition is an international moot court competition with participating teams from over 500 law schools and 80 countries. The competition is held before a fictitious International Court of Justice, which is the judicial organ of the United Nations, and is based on a contrived dispute between countries. The competition is held each year in Washington, D.C. For more information on the competition, please visit http://www.ilsa.org/jessup/.
