The 2011 Philip C. Jessup International Law Moot Court Competition is underway. Super-Regional Rounds have started in the United States (some rounds were held last weekend and some will be held this coming weekend).
In the Midwest U.S. Super-Regional Rounds, the regional champion was Case Western Reserve University and the Runner-up was the University of Michigan. Both teams advance to the International Rounds in Washington D.C.
The other semifinalist teams were Loyola University of Chicago and Thomas M. Cooley Law School. The quarter finalist teams were Ohio Northern University, the University of Detroit Mercy, the University of Tennessee, and Wayne State University.
Tyler Talbert of Case Western Reserve University won the best oralist award in the Final Round. The winner of that award receives a copy of the book Careers in International Law, donated to the Jessup Competition by its publisher, the American Bar Association Section of International Law.
