The International Law Students Association (which organizes the Philip C. Jessup International Law Moot Court Competition), has posted a five-minute excerpt from the video of the 2009 Final Round: THE CASE CONCERNING "OPERATION PROVIDE SHELTER."
This final round features Universidad de los Andes (Colombia) against the University College London (United Kingdom). The judges on this panel are Justice Bruno Simma (of the International Court of Justice) and law professors Ruth Wedgwood and Jose Alvarez. The video clip shows Top Oralist Sebastian Machado of the World Champion team from Universidad de los Andes (Colombia).
A DVD showing the entire final round is available for purchase from the merchandise page of International Law Students Association website, on which you can buy other Jessup-related items. DVDs are also available for earlier years by clicking here. These DVDs are really essential training tools for any teams competing in Jessup (or in another international law moot court competition).
Here is a link to the DVD excerpt. The link is at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b7Kx8jBeyWI:
