White & Case Sponsors Nine National Rounds and One U.S. Regional Round of the Jessup International Law Moot Court
White & Case LLP announced that it is sponsoring ten rounds of the 10 Philip C. Jessup International Law Moot Court Competitions. The sponsorship includes nine national rounds (Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, Georgia, Poland, Russia, South Africa and the United Kingdom) and the US regional round in Washington, DC.
This is the third straight year White & Case has sponsored multiple competitions as the sole Global Partner of the International Law Students Association (ILSA), which administers the Jessup, and the first year the Firm is sponsoring the International Rounds and the Jessup Cup.
Jessup is the world’s largest moot court competition, with more than 2,000 law students participating each year, representing over 500 law schools from more than 80 countries. Students present oral and written arguments on a hypothetical international law case to a simulated International Court of Justice. In 2010, the Jessup Problem addresses “the right to self-determination and the lawfulness of measures taken to protect the economic resources of a state.”
