We are pleased to announce that Woźniak Legal will be one of the organisers of the National Rounds of the Jessup in Poland. Our associate, Adrian Andrychowski, will also be the National Administrator of the competition.

The Philip C. Jessup International Law Moot Court Competition which is the largest moot competition in the world, attracting participants from almost 700 law schools in more than 90 countries in recent years, opened last week. This year it will focus on the legality of cyber-surveillance and cyber-attacks under international law. The competition has been described as the most prestigious moot court competition in the world by a large number of organizations and universities internationally.

The competition is a simulation of a fictional dispute between countries before the International Court of Justice (ICJ).The competition is named after Philip Jessup, who once served on the ICJ. It is organised by the International Law Students Association. The Jessup moot started in 1960 as a friendly advocacy competition between two teams from Harvard University.
