The team from Moscow State University (Russia) beat Columbia Law School (New York) in the Final Rounds of the 2012 Philip C. Jessup International Law Moot Court Competition, which were held in Washington, D.C. this past Saturday.
The final round bench -- for the first time in Jessup history -- consisted of three sitting judges from the International Court of Justice. (You can read more about the competition at the International Law Prof Blog).
A DVD of the final round will be available for purchase from the International Law Students Association (ILSA), the organization that puts on the Jessup competition each year. It is a highly recommended training tool for coaches and teams competing in the 2013 Jessup Competition. (You should probably have teams watch a couple of years of the final round competitions.)
The International Rounds of the Jessup Competition this year seems to have been the largest ever in the organization's history.
