Jessup International Moot Court Competition

Branding Project

White & Case is the official sponsor of Jessup. The Jessup is the world’s largest moot court competition. Thousands of law students from around the world compete in a fictional dispute between two countries and students present oral and written arguments on a hypothetical international law case.

Each year has a new compromis with new issues regarding international law. The 2016 compromis outlined two neighboring states, Amestonia and Reisland, currently at odds based on events related to international broadcasting laws, and the legality of cyber-surveillance and government funded spying. Meanwhile, there is an eco-terrorist movement motivated by the destruction of the Amestonian bee population using neuro-active insecticides.
