Student Activities

  • The International Law Society student group promotes the understanding of international and transnational law and related issues with opportunities for study, research, and career networking.
  • The Philip C. Jessup International Law Moot Court Competition is the world's largest moot court competition, with participants from nearly 650 law schools and 100 countries. New England Law student teams compete against their peers in a simulated dispute between countries before the International Court of Justice. Basic minimum requirements to apply for the team include that the applicant has at least a 3.2 GPA, has taken public international law, and is able to work the 10-25 hours per week from September through February necessary to prepare for the competition. Please note: availability may vary from year to year, as teams are formed only when a sufficient number of students qualify during the “try-out” period.
