Next Year's Jessup Problem
At the 2014 White & Case World Championship Round of the Philip C. Jessup International Law Moot Court Competition, the International Law Students Association (ILSA) announced that the 2015 Compromis will present questions of:
- treaty interpretation and applicability in the face of changed circumstances;
- the propriety of counter-measures; and
- procedural and substantive issues raised by the secession of a province from one country and its annexation by another.
The problem itself for the 2015 competition will be released in September 2014, a little earlier than usual because of an ILSA-sponsored conference being held in London. The Jessup Competition is the world's largest moot court competition, with more than 600 teams competiting from over 120 countries. Click here for more information.
