We are pleased to announce that Woźniak Legal’s associate Adrian Andrychowski has attended the Polish National Rounds of the Philip C. Jessup International Law Moot Court Competition, where he has acted as the President of the panel. Adrian has judged the semifinal round on the 11th of February 2015.
The Jessup is the world’s largest and most prestigious moot court competition, gathering participants from over 550 law schools and faculties in more than 80 countries.
The 56th edition of the Jessup concerns the issues of treaty interpretation, proportionality of countermeasures, and the problems arising from the secession of a province from one state and its subsequent annexation into another state. The Jessup Compromis revolves around a Convention concluded in 1938 between two fictional states concerning the mining of a mineral, which has gained great commercial value in 2011. This in turn has led to a disagreement between the states, which ultimately resulted in an annexation of the province by the other state.
The winner of the National Rounds gets to represent Poland in the White & Case International Rounds in Washington D.C. Adrian has previously participated in the 54th edition of the Jessup as a member of the Jagiellonian University’s team, which represented Poland in the International Rounds. The University of Łódź is this year’s Polish National Champion and will represent Poland in the International Rounds between the 5th and 11th of April in Washington D.C.
Adrian Andrychowski on his Jessup experience – “I recommend the Jessup for all those interested in litigation. It is an invaluable experience, which helps develop legal writing and oral advocacy skills. It is also a very challenging experience as students need to commit a large amount of their time to properly research the problems, to write the memoranda, and to adequately prepare themselves for the oral rounds. As a judge of this year’s oral rounds, I have to say that the participants were well-prepared and that I have heard very sophisticated arguments made before the court”.
