The Official Website of the Italian National Rounds of the Philip C. Jessup International Law Moot Court Competition



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 2020-21 season marks the 62th edition of the Jessup Competition worldwide, and the 19th edition of the Italian National Rounds.

The 2021 Global Rounds of the Jessup Competition

In account of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic and related restrictions to gatherings and travels,  this year the Jessup Competition will be consolidated into a one-of-a-kind, fully global online event. Each and every team that registers for the 2021 Jessup will be invited to compete in the virtual Global Rounds. The Global Rounds will be spread over a five-week period beginning in mid-March 2021, with each team competing against opponents from around the world.
For more information, see the ILSA Official Announcement 

The possibility and opportunity to organise in-person friendly rounds replacing the 2021 Italian National Rounds is currently being discussed.
