About the Competitions Division

MCB Competition Staff Editors represent our program at an array of national competitions. 2L members engage in an intensive training program in oral and written advocacy in their first semester; their second semester is spent preparing for and competing in an interschool moot court competition.

In the 3L year, a few advocates are selected to compete on NYU’s behalf at two national moot court competitions while others serve as coaches for each 2L competition team.

The Jessup Competition

The Philip C. Jessup International Law Moot Court Competition is the world’s largest moot court competition, with participants from over 550 law schools representing nearly 100 countries. The competition is a year-long experience requiring deep knowledge of international law. For this reason, Jessup is the only NYU Moot Court Board competitions team that auditions and accepts non-MCB members.

The team is selected in early fall. If you’re an NYU Law JD or LLM student with expertise in international law and interested in trying out for the Jessup Team or serving as one of the team’s coaches, please email us!
