The Philip C. Jessup
International Law Moot Court Competition is a simulation of a fictional
dispute between countries before the International Court of Justice, the
judicial organ of the United Nations.
Over 550 schools compete in more than 80 countries. Most
students must first compete in qualifying competitions (mostly held between
January and March) to earn the right to advance to the international rounds.
The teams prepare oral and written pleadings arguing both
the applicant and respondent positions of the case.
This year the national rounds in Mexico took place from February
17-19 at the Foreign Ministry, with the Universidad
Iberoamericana emerging as the winning
team. It will represent Mexico in the international rounds to be held from
March 27 to April 2 in Washington, D.C.
We wish every success
to the winning team!
