A team of 3rd and 4th year Law students at Notre Dame University-Louaize (NDU) have won the National Lebanese Rounds of the Jessup competition.
Jessup is the world's largest moot court competition, with participants from over 700 law schools in 90 countries. The Competition simulates a fictional dispute between countries before the judicial branch of the United Nations: the International Court of Justice. One team from each eligible school is allowed to participate, preparing oral and written pleadings, and arguing both the applicant and respondent positions of the case.
Having won the national rounds, the NDU team will be representing the Unviersity and Lebanon during the international rounds in Washington DC on March 31, 2019. Speaking on her experience with the Jessup competition, team member Daisy El Hajje said: “Those who are crazy enough to think they can change the world are the ones who actually do.”
Congratulations to the NDU team and best of luck with the final rounds.
