The aim of this course is to prepare for the moot court competition - the Philip C. Jessup International Law Moot Court Competition, which is the world's largest and most prestigious competition. By working on a case-study, students should enhance not only their doctrinal knowledge, but also issue-spotting and analytical ability: skills necessary for all capable and thoughtful lawyers. This course will seek to explore the nexus between law and facts, theory and practice.
Working on a case study depending on the topic for each year. This year's Jessup Problem: the legality of the use of unmanned drones and international anti-corruption law.
