Jessup International Law Moot Competition 2014 Winners

February 17, 2014

This past weekend the International and Comparative Law Programs at Denver Law hosted one of the Super-Regional Competitions of the Philip C. Jessup International Law Moot—the world’s largest moot court competition. Our school welcomed 22 teams from Arizona, Nebraska, Utah, California, Kansas, Minnesota, Ohio, Missouri, Louisiana, Oklahoma, Texas, Tennessee, Wyoming, and Colorado. The team from the University of North Carolina was prevented from attending because of travel complications caused by the snowstorm.

A Sturm alum, Katie Ellis, was the regional administrator, and the event was ably and efficiently organized by Karlyn Shorb with the assistance of a large number of our students. One hundred judges, including many of our faculty colleagues and alumni, participated in the competition. The judges for the final round were Harry Arkin, Esq. and Professors Annecoos Wiersema and Ved Nanda, with Professor Nanda presiding. After six preliminary rounds, and quarter final, semi-final, and final rounds, Loyola University New Orleans took home the first place trophy and will be advancing, along with Arizona State University, to the World Rounds. Our own Denver Law Jessup team will compete in the Northwest Regional rounds of the Jessup Cup in Portland in two weeks.
