2016 First Batch of Basic Materials

Below is a list of the first batch of Basic Materials provided in connection with the 2016 Philip C. Jessup International Law Moot Court Competition.

The ILSA Executive Office, along with those involved in the writing and editing of the 2016 Jessup Compromis, have selected these materials and hope that you find them interesting in light of the context of this year's Compromis. 

We would like to emphasize that the simple inclusion of any particular text in the Basic Materials does not necessarily entail that the content of the text is binding as international law nor does it necessarily reflect current prevailing theory or practice.

Please note that teams are NOT required to use these materials. They are being provided to teams as a launching point for research. As always, participants are HIGHLY encouraged to conduct their own research outside of the scope of these Basic Materials.
