The Philip C. Jessup International Law Moot Court Competition is the world's largest moot court competition, with more than 550 teams competing from law schools all across the world. This year, for example, the Kingdom of Bhutan participated. The international final rounds, known as the White & Case Rounds, are being held this week in Washington, D.C. Last night, 32 teams from the following countries were announced as those advancing further in the competition:
United Kingdom (2)
United States (5)
Rounds are open to the public (just no scouting for other teams), so if you are near the Capital Hilton in Washington DC stop in to see a round. The finals are on Saturday afternoon, being judged by two judges of the Internaitonal Court of Justice and Professor Cherif Bassiouni of DePaul University College of Law.
