Jessup Moot

 UNB Law is looking forward to hosting next year’s Canadian Qualifying round and students are encouraged to get involved in this prestigious event, coinciding with UNB Law celebrating it’s 125th anniversary.

The Jessup Competition  is the world’s largest most prestigious moot court competition and the oldest moot court competition dedicated to international law. The Jessup is open to law schools all over the world with participants from over 550 law schools in more than 87 countries.

The Jessup Moot provides a unique opportunity to prepare and present written and oral arguments on timely issues of public international law in the context of a hypothetical legal dispute between nations. It’s also a great networking opportunity and a chance to demonstrate your ability to practice law outside of the classroom.

Four UNB law students traveled to Edmonton over March break to participate in the Canadian qualifying round of the Philip C. Jessup International Law Moot. 

Although the UNB team didn’t advance to the semi-finals, Garreth McGrath was recognized as the ninth best oralist.
