On February 9, 2019, teams from Baku State University and Academy of State Customs Committee will compete in oral rounds to find out the best team that will represent Azerbaijan in the international rounds. Oral rounds will be held in ADA University and the winning team will visit Washington D.C. to participate in the international rounds of Jessup in March.
Oral rounds, being the most competitive, breathtaking, and at the same time exciting part of the competition, is an arena where teams put all their litigation, persuasion and advocacy skills for the sake of a fictional state they represent before the International Court of Justice. It is worth to remind that previous Azerbaijani National Round of Jessup was held 13 years before, making this year’s National Round much more worthwhile to attend.
Jessup case, standing out each year with emphasizing emerging and vital legal issues, this year addresses the following international legal matters:
- Appropriation of traditional knowledge for commercial purposes;
- State responsibility for obligations and human rights violations of corporations.
