Jessup International Law Moot Court Competition

The Jessup International Law Moot Court Competition is an international moot court competition between law schools in over fifty countries. Each school fields a five-member team which competes in written and oral advocacy on an international law topic. Michigan's team is chosen by an intra-Michigan competition organized by the International Law Society.

The competition is open to all law students. The five-member team travels first to the Regional Round and then (hopefully) on to the finals, which have been held at various universities throughout the world. The Michigan team won the United States competition in 1998. The Law School's International Law Society supervises and coaches the Michigan team, which has consistently done very well in competition.
