On 16 February, 2023, Modern International Law Studies Centre held the Iranian Qualifying Rounds of Philippe C. Jessup International Law Moot Court Competition.
The Competition is annually organised and held by the International Law Students Association (ILSA), pursuing the goal of simulating the work and the functioning of the International Court of Justice, the principal judicial organ of the United Nations. Although, four Iranian teams had registered at first, the number of teams decreased to two in the Oral Rounds.
Allameh Tabataba’i University and Tarbiat Modares University were the qualified teams which had to compete in the Oral Rounds, once as the Applicant and once as the Respondent.
Finally, Allameh Tabataba’i University, the Champion, was determined by the judges to represent Iran in the International Rounds. It should also be mentioned that Tarbiat Modares University won the ‘Best Memorial Award’ like the previous year. ‘Best Oralist award’ was dedicated to Ms. Hannaneh Jafari, a member of Allameh Tabataba’i University’s team.
The International Rounds will be held 8-15 April 2023 at the Hyatt Regency on Capitol Hill, Washington D.C.
