Jessup International Law Moot Court Competition.
Barrier-free trade, protection of human rights, and sustainable development were the hallmarks and guiding principles of the international order created following the Second World War. This international order generated the forces that together with technology have produced globalization. New opportunities are now emerging as the old international order transitions into a global one. However, the realignment required by the new order is putting pressure on existing political and economic interests.
How will the emerging order operate? Who will gain and who will lose? How will the new order interact with the old? Join experts from the Texas A&M School of Law, scholars, practitioners, and government officials to consider the global and local future of international trade, human rights, and development.
