The Philip C. Jessup International Law Moot Court Competition is the oldest, largest, and most prestigious moot court competition in the world. Every year, law students from more than 600 law schools and more than 90 countries take part in a simulation of a fictional dispute between countries before the International Court of Justice, the judicial organ of the United Nations.
The 2017-2018 season marks the 59th year of the Jessup Competition worldwide, and the 15th anniversary from the first participation of Italian universities in the competition.
The Italian National Rounds of the 2018 Philip C. Jessup International Law Moot Court Competition will be held in Roma, on 8-10 February 2018, kindly hosted by L.U.I.S.S. "Guido Carli".
