The Philip C. Jessup International Law Moot Court Competition is the oldest, the largest and the most prestigious moot court competition in the world. More than 700 law schools from 90+ countries participate in this competition. It is organised by the International Law Students Association (ILSA), a non-profit association of students and lawyers who are dedicated to the promotion of international law. 

Best Memorials of the Philip C. Jessup International Law Moot Court Competition

This competition is a rigorous simulation of a hypothetical conflict between countries before the International Court of Justice, the UN’s judicial organ. Teams of law students compete against one another by presenting oral and written pleadings to resolve timely issues of mostly public international law. Most countries hold national or regional rounds to select the best team or teams to advance to the international phase of the competition in Washington D.C.

Indian law students have consistently performed well in these competitions. India has been adjudged as the champions of Jessup, twice in history, i.e. in 1999, 2013. The last time India was in the finale of the world rounds was in 2018. 

NLSIU is the only Indian University to ever win this competition twice. The first time in the year 1999 when they were in the finals against a South African team from the University of Pretoria. In 2013, NLSIU was up against a Singaporean team from Singapore Management University. In 2018, they lost out in the finals competing against an Australian team from the University of Queensland. There have been other Universities from India like NALSAR which have also performed well and made it to the world rounds. 

It was reported a few days back that MNLU Mumbai, NLU Jodhpur, NLUO, NLIU and JGLS qualified for Jessup from India! NLIU has further advanced to the octa rounds.
