Each year, the Institute of International Economic Law supports Georgetown Law students’ participation in the John H. Jackson Moot Court Competition (formerly the European Law Students Association (ELSA) Moot Court Competition), the premier international moot court competition focused on international trade law and based on the rules of the World Trade Organization.

Georgetown Law students regularly perform exceptionally well in both the regional and global rounds.  Recent regional rounds have taken place in Canada, Columbia, and in Washington, D.C.–with the global finals always set in Geneva.

Tryouts for the John H. Jackson Moot Court Team are held each fall semester, with regional rounds taking place in the spring and the final round in Geneva taking place in the summer. The John H. Jackson Moot Court Team works closely in teams under the leadership of exceptional coaches and guest panelists to gain unparalleled experience in the field of international trade law.
