Cancellation of the 2020 Jessup International Rounds

                                                                 11 March 2020

Dear Colleagues and Friends of the Jessup: 

    A few moments ago, I notified all the Jessup competitors and their coaches that the 2020 White & Case International Rounds have been cancelled due to the spreading COVID-19 pandemic.  

    I am writing now to inform you of the same decision: For the first time in the history of the Philip C. Jessup International Law Moot Court Competition, we will not conduct the International Rounds. 

    As you know from last week’s message, we were still hopeful that we could find a way to proceed even in the face of the challenges of COVID-19. However, after discussions with teams, judges, volunteers, sponsors and officials from around the world, we are left with no choice but to cancel the International Rounds. 

    I looked forward to re-convening our community of students, scholars, and practitioners, especially in the face of this global challenge. My fondest desire was to pose the Jessup Competition as a bulwark against COVID-19, and a platform for international cooperation in response to global challenges. That is, after all, what the Jessup is all about. 

    Regrettably, we have determined that holding a large international conference – with hundreds of students, judges, and volunteers from more than 100 countries – would undermine, rather than support, the international efforts to address this issue. 

    You can read the full message to the Jessup Community on our website(http://www.ilsa.org/2020/03/11/cancellation-of-2020-international-rounds/).Please contact me if you have any questions or concerns. 

    We will consider whether, after the COVID-19 crises passes, there are ways to convene the Friends of Jessup community socially, so we will not have to wait another year without the in-person friendship and support this community provides. Please do not hesitate to reach out to me directly if you have other ideas for ways to keep this immensely valuable community together and engaged. And we hope to see you all back in Washington, DC for the Jessup 2021 (4-10 April 2021).
