Department of Law students, #NDUers Celine el-Hajje, Joe-David Sabeh, Remy Hanna, and Romy Boulos, studying at the Faculty of Law and Political Science (FLPS), Notre Dame University-Louaize (NDU), competed and won on February 24, 2018, the National Rounds of the prestigious “59th Philip C. Jessup International Law Moot Court Competition.” The #NDUers are expected to represent Lebanon in the International Rounds scheduled to take place between April 1 and 7, 2018, in Washington D.C., USA. If successful, they will proceed to the Jessup Cup World Championship Rounds.
Jessup is the world's oldest and largest moot court competition with participants from over 645 law schools in 95 countries. The moot stimulates a fictional dispute between countries presented before the International Court of Justice, the judicial organ of the United Nations.
Lebanon Chamber of Commerce Chairman Mohammad Choucair has offered to cover the #NDUers travel expenses to compete in Washington D.C. Choucair also announced a joint venture between the Chamber of Commerce and HEC Paris to launch in September 2018 at École supérieure des affaires (ESA), Beirut, a new M.A. in Entrepreneurship. This new master’s program will commit to grant a full scholarship to one member of the NDU moot court team, providing admission requirements are met.
NDU is extremely proud of its students’ exceptional achievement and looks forward to seeing them represent their University and their nation in the international rounds!
