Introduction to Jessup

The Philip C. Jessup International Law Moot Court Competition is the world's largest moot court competition, with participants from over 550 law schools in more than 87 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. Teams prepare oral and written pleadings arguing both the applicant and respondent positions of the case.

This guide lists resources that may be helpful to participants in the Jessup competition. It is focused on the topic of Public International Law.

The 2018 Jessup Problem deals with public international arbitration, territorial waters, nuclear non-proliferation agreements, and the seizure of foreign vessels in territorial waters.
