The Philip C. Jessup International Moot Court Competition is the oldest and largest public international law moot court competition, with more than 1000 participating universities all around the globe! The final round will be held in person in Washington, DC, between 30 March 2024 and 6 April 2024.

The Jessup 2024 problem, scheduled to be released by mid-September 2023, will concern traitors and crooks.
