John H. Jackson Moot Court: Call for Case Author

The European Law Students' Association (ELSA) has issued a call for the Case Author for the 19th edition of the John H. Jackson Moot Court Competition. The WTI has been a proud sponsor of this Moot Court for several years and many WTI alumni have acted as panelists and coaches in previous editions.

Case proposals will be evaluated by an Academic Board composed of WTO law academics, practitioners, and staff of the WTO Secretariat. After acceptance of the case proposal by the Academic Board, the case author will work with the Academic Board to refine the issues presented in the proposal before the launch of the Competition with the publication of the case on 15 September 2020. In addition to the initial moot case, the case author will also prepare written clarifications addressing questions raised by students on the case (due in November 2020) as well as a bench memorandum and score sheet for panelists to use in judging the written submissions and competition (due in the first week of December 2020).
