IU JESSUP TEAM GOES TO WASHINGTON FOR INTERNATIONAL ROUNDS
Law School students Derek Mills, Sandra Ante, Pamela Fierst, and Nick Levi, who in February won the U.S. central region contest of the 2003 Philip C. Jessup International Law Moot Court Competition, advanced to the international rounds held in Washington, D.C., during the first week of April. Coached by Professor Hannah Buxbaum, the IU team competed in the international rounds against 83 teams, only 10 of which were from the United States. Mills, Ante, Fierst, and Levi all ranked in the "Top 100 Oralists" for the international rounds. Levi had an especially impressive finish, placing 32nd out of approximately 340 competitors. The IU team's four preliminary international rounds were against Italy, Indonesia, Harvard, and Denver. The team members gave stellar arguments against these competitors, though they did not advance to round 16.
At the U.S. central region competition, held in Columbia, Mo., the IU team defeated Loyola University in the final round and was the only team in the tournament to win every preliminary round. They brought home second-place honors for written memorials. Ante and Mills tied for third place and Levi won 13th place in the individual oralists competition.
The 2003 Jessup competition focused on issues of state responsibility for the treatment of women and children during and following a civil war. The competition held its first round at Harvard University in 1959. Today, approximately 1,500 students from more than 300 law schools in almost 50 nations participate in the Jessup moot court competition every year. It is the largest and most prestigious international law moot court competition in the world.
