A team of Stetson University College of Law students were finalists at the Southern Regional of the Philip C. Jessup International Law Moot Court Competition on March 8 in New Orleans, Louisiana, and earned the right to advance to the international rounds in Washington, D.C., April 5-11.
“We are thrilled that our Jessup team will have an opportunity to advocate on the world stage,” said Professor Brooke Bowman, Stetson’s moot court adviser. “This is a priceless educational opportunity for our advocates.”
Jessup is the largest moot court competition in the world. Every eligible law school around the world is permitted to send one team to the regionals. This year, more than 550 schools are competing in 55 qualifying rounds January through March in order to advance to the international rounds.
