In 2019, the Jessup Moot Court celebrates its 60th anniversary. As usual, the Jessup will challenge students with fascinating, current and international legal questions.
The topics for Jessup 2019 concern the appropriation of traditional knowledge for commercial purposes, state responsibility for corporate environmental degradation and human rights violations, and majestic herds of migratory yaks.
For general information about the Jessup Moot Court Competition, please browse through the International Law Students Association’s website.
