If your schedule and personal travel budget allow, please consider being a Judge in the 2018 Ukrainian Rounds of the Philip C. Jessup International Law Moot Court Competition. The competition will be held in Ukraine from 9-11 February, 2018. Register at https://goo.gl/rrucBU before 10 December 2017.
The 2017-2018 season marks the 59th year of the Philip C. Jessup International Law Moot Court Competition. Jessup is the world's largest moot court competition, with participants from over 645 law schools in at least 95 countries (and this year, maybe more than 100 countries!). The Competition is a simulation of a fictional dispute between countries before the International Court of Justice, the judicial organ of the United Nations. One team is allowed to participate from every eligible school. Teams prepare oral and written pleadings arguing both the applicant and respondent positions of the case.For other information about the Jessup competition, visit the Jessup Page on the website of the International Law Students Association by clicking here.
And yes, judges are also needed in at least 94 other countries, so please visit the Jessup Page to register as a judge.
