INTERNATIONAL LAW MOOT COURT COMPETITION - 2020 ITALIAN NATIONAL ROUNDS
The International Law Students Association / Jessup Italy, in collaboration with
Università degli Studi di Bari ‘Aldo Moro’, is glad to announce that the Italian
National Rounds of the 2020 Philip C. Jessup International Law Moot Court
Competition will take place from 12 to 15 February 2020, kindly hosted by the
Dipartimento di Giurisprudenza of Università degli Studi di Bari ‘Aldo Moro’.
The Philip C. Jessup International Law Moot Court Competition is the oldest,
largest and most prestigious international law moot court competition of the world.
Every year, more than 700 universities from more than 90 countries in the world take
part in the national and international rounds of the competition.
The competition is a simulation of a fictional dispute between countries before the
International Court of Justice, the judicial organ of the United Nations. Each Team,
composed by 2 to 5 students enrolled at the same university, is requested to prepare
written and oral pleadings arguing both the applicant and respondent positions of the
case and to defend their case before a panel of 3 judges who will evaluate them based
upon knowledge of international law and advocacy skills
