The Philip C. Jessup International Law Moot Court Competition, sponsored and organized by the International Law Students Association (ILSA), is the world's largest and most competitive moot court competition. More than 550 teams from law schools in more than 80 countries compete in this competition to promote apprecitation for international law.
In the United States, there are six super-regional rounds. The last of those six rounds was held this weekend in New Orleans at the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana. Twenty-two teams competed in the super-regional round. The finalists of the U.S. Southern Regional round are Washington University of St. Louis and The John Marshall Law School of Chicago. Both teams advance to the White and Case International Rounds of the Jessup Competition in Washington D.C. in April 2014.
