For the 61st round this year, the Philip C. Jessup International Law Moot Court competition comes with a new International Law challenge. As usual, the Jessup will challenge students with fascinating, current and international legal questions.
The topics for Jessup 2020 concern multi-fora international litigation, the accountability of a foreign minister for war crimes and immunities and an autonomous weapon system installed along the border.
The German National Rounds 2020 in Göttingen came to an end and we are very proud and happy to announce that we made it to the semi-finals.
We kindly thank all teams we met in the oral rounds for the great pleadings: Christian-Albrechts-Universität zu Kiel, Ruhr-Universität Bochum, Universität Leipzig, Ruprecht-Karls-Universität Heidelberg, Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München, Hertie School of Governance and Albert-Ludwigs-Universität Freiburg. Thank you for the amazing pleadings!
Many thanks as well to everyone who supported us at trial pleadings, financially or just by keeping their fingers crossed.
A special thanks to the National Administrators for hosting such a wonderful event.
Unfortunately, the International Rounds were cancelled due to the Covid-19 Pandemic which is why we look forward to an even more outstanding Jessup year 2021!
