Jessup International Law Moot Competition to to enable students to gain significant experience in written and oral advocacy in international law before a simulated international tribunal.

The Competition is a simulation of a fictional dispute between countries before the International Court of Justice, the judicial organ of the United Nations". Members of the Griffith Law School Jessup team are all expected to prepare the written memorials and participate in the internal Giffith practice moots.
