University of Bari Hosts Italian Rounds of the Philip C. Jessup International Law Moot Court Competition
The Philip C. Jessup International Law Moot Court Competition is the oldest, largest, and most prestigious moot court competition in the world. Every year, law students from more than 600 law schools and more than 90 countries take part in a simulation of a fictional dispute between countries before the International Court of Justice, the judicial organ of the United Nations.
The 2019-2020 season marks the 61th edition of the Jessup Competition worldwide.
This year also marks the 18th edition of the Italian National Rounds and the first time that the Italian National Rounds of the 2020 Philip C. Jessup International Law Moot Court Competition will take place in southern Italy. The competition is being hosted this week by the Università degli Studi di Bari 'Aldo Moro', which will also be the host in May of the next Global Legal Skills Conference.
Congratulations to the University of Bari on hosting this year's competition and good luck to all of the teams who have worked so hard to get to this stage of the competition.
