Requirements for participation

Interest in International Law, but previous knowledge is not a prerequisite for selection to the team! What is counts is your motivation, ability to work in a team and creativity.

This year's case (The Case Concerning The Sterren Forty) deals with the topical issues of "political expression, statelessness, the right to a nationality, and the scope of the United Nations Security Council's authority in the pacific settlement of disputes."


  • As a participant, you will receive rhetoric and writing training in Legal English as well as sponsored trips to the European Friendly Rounds and the International Rounds in Washington D.C.
    Afterwards, you can publish your knowledge in the Austrian Review of International and European Law.
  • You will become part of the Jessup Alumni and can expand your professional network at our annual association meetings.
  • The Jessup International Law Moot Court can be credited as 2 seminars, foreign language competence, 6 hours of elective courses and as a doctoral seminar. In addition, the memorial and pleading can also be credited as a Bachelor's thesis in the IREWI programme.
