Jessup Moot is a summer session elective unit (LAWS3010). It is the Australian round of the Philip C. Jessup International Law Moot Court Competition.

Kate Ogg and Imogen Saunders will be the team advisers for the 2016 ANU College of Law Jessup Moot team.

The Jessup Moot is a prestigious international mooting tournament, which takes place over the Australian summer. It is the biggest student mooting competition in the world, with over 500 law schools and over 80 countries participating. The Australian rounds are held in Canberra in early February and the international rounds are held in Washington DC in March/April. The top two teams from the Australian competition travel to the United States to compete in the international rounds.

The 2016 Jessup Problem should be released in late September. Historically, the team does not begin work on the problem until after the completion of second semester exams in November.

Kate and Imogen will hold an information meeting on Jessup Moot on Monday 17 August in the Law Link Theatre from 6pm-7pm. Please come to this meeting if you are interested in being a member of the 2016 ANU Jessup team.

The deadline for submitting applications will be due by 5 pm on Wednesday 19 August and must be submitted to the Services Office. Kate and Imogen will interview a shortlist on the afternoon of 28 August, and then select the team shortly thereafter.

If you'd like the application form or have any further questions, please email ils@anu.edu.au.
