Jessup Compendium

The Jessup Compendium is a compilation of the results of the annual Philip C. Jessup International Law Moot Court Competition, including the Compromis, the Judges' Memorandum of Law and Authorities, Award Winning Memorials, and the Results of the International Rounds.

Now in its 58th year, the Jessup Competition is one of the world's premier international law events, with participants from over 550 law schools in more than 87 countries. The competition simulates a fictional international dispute before the International Court of Justice, the judicial organ of the United Nations. Representing both sides of the argument, each Jessup team is required to prepare oral and written pleadings.

Thousands of law students from around the world work to craft persuasive arguments to the pressing legal questions presented by the Jessup Problem (the Compromis), which every year addresses timely issues of international law. The students first compete in national or regional competitions in January and February.  Winners (and other highly ranked teams) earn a place at the world championship White & Case International Rounds, held every spring in Washington, D.C. Each volume of the Jessup Compendium chronicles the journey of the year's Competition, from the release of the problem to the winning memorials and final results. Also included in the Compendium are that year's official Bench Memorandum and copies of the winning memorials from the Evans, Dillard, and Baxter Competitions.

ILSA Guide to International Law Moot Court Competitions

The authors have written a volume that is useful for students, coaches and faculty advisors with a wide variety of moot-court experience. For participants who have no previous experience with international law moot courts, the book serves as a primer, introducing the topics of moot court generally, international law, and oral and legal advocacy. For participants with prior course work in international law, it provides a guide for applying this knowledge to the moot-court context. For participants with competition experience, it provides a first glimpse into how moot court differs when the legal basis is international law. And finally, for those with experience with international law moot courts, this text is intended to serve as a ready handbook for "refreshers" on certain topics and for quick reference. The ILSA Guide is written by Cecilie Elisabeth Schjatvet & Zakir Hafez and published by the International Law Institute.
