The Phillip C. Jessup International Moot Court Competition 2015

Now in its 54th year, the Jessup is the world's largest moot court competition with participants from more than 550 law schools in more than 80 countries. The Competition is a simulation of a dispute between countries before the International Court of Justice, the judicial organ of the United Nations.

Thousands of law students from around the world will work all year long on this season's Jessup Problem and compete in qualifying competitions to earn the right to advance to the White & Case International Rounds held every spring in Washington, D.C.

Teams, Submit Your Questions for the Compromis Authors

For the third year in a row, the LL.M. Program at The Fletcher School in association with the International Law Students Association, is proud to host the Final Round Lunch and Discussion with the Compromis Authors on the final day of the competition, to be held Saturday, April 11, 2015.

Before an audience of hundreds of Jessup final rounds participants, the Compromis authors will offer their views on how this year’s issues were selected, the types of arguments they expected to hear from competitors (and those they didn't), and what they thought the best arguments were for each side; they will also answer questions from the audience and respond to questions submitted electronically through this website and e-mail

The discussion will be filmed and later available on the International Law Students Association website.

To ask a question of this year's authors (to be revealed at the Final Round Lunch), send an e-mail to or use this web form.

For frequent updates on the Jessup Competition, please follow The Jessup and White & Case Jessup on Twitter. Fletcher will join the Jessup Twitter conversation in the days leading up to the final round.

Good luck to all of this year's teams. Hope to see you in D.C!
