Applied project «Philip C. Jessup international law moot court competition training 2021-2022»

The goal of the project is to train HSE Law Faculty’s students to participate in the Philip C. Jessup international law moot court competition.

The Competition was established in 1959 as an international law competition of Harvard university, held as a moot court – an imitation of proceedings before the International Court of Justice of the United Nations. Today, Philip C. Jessup moot court is one of the most famous and reputable moot courts in the world, uniting around 3000 students from more than 700 universities across 100 countries. HSE successfully participates in the competition since 2012. In 2022 the case concerns human rights in the Internet, data protection, and intervention into a referendum process by a foreign state.  

The project will result in enhanced legal drafting and oral performance in English. The quality of the skills can be assessed through written Memorials for the applicant and the respondent, and oral presentations. Grades given by the judges, as well as the overall statistics are published on the Competition’s website.

Coaches are Gayane Gulyan, a recent graduate of HSE master’s programme «Law of international trade, finance and economic integration», and Matvey Tarasov, a recent graduate of the same programme, PhD candidate at HSE and Study and teaching and learning specialist of the School of International Law.
