Wednesday, March 28, 2018 - 12:00pm


Please join us on Wednesday, March 28 at noon in room 1020 to find out how you can participate in the Philip C. Jessup International Law Moot Court Competition. The Philip C. Jessup International Law Moot Court Competition is the world's largest moot court competition, with participants from more than 645 law schools in 95 countries.

The Competition is a simulation of a fictional dispute between countries before the International Court of Justice, the judicial organ of the United Nations. One team is allowed to participate from every eligible school.

Students must be registered for Moot Court I or must have taken Moot Court I to participate in the competition. Students will start working on the competition memorials in the fall and will compete in the competition in the spring semester. The team is coached by Prof. Ira H. Trako and Prof. Paige Canfield.

The 2017-18 SLU LAW Jessup team, consisting of Caitlin Fagan, Marie Claire Dwyer, Clayton Weems, Edward Theobald, and Brian Sableman, won the award for second best brief memorial in the U.S. Midwest Regional rounds.
