Congratulations to 3Ls Xheneta Ademi, Tyler Nash, Frank Remington, and Patrick Winter for reaching the quarterfinals of the Philip C. Jessup International Moot Court Midwest Regionals in Chicago this past weekend. In its 56th year, the Jessup Competition is one of the world’s most prestigious moot court competitions. The Midwest region is comprised of 21 teams. Our Marquette team went 3 and 1 to advance to the quarterfinal rounds.
Attys. and Marquette Law alumni Juan Amado (Jessup, 2011), Matt Tobin (Jessup, 2014) and Drew Walgreen (MU moot court, 2013), as well as Professors Megan A. O’Brien and Ryan Scoville served as team advisors. This year’s Jessup problem involved treaty interpretation in light of a claim of fundamental change in circumstances; a state’s use of countermeasures in response to an alleged breach; and, procedural and substantive issues resulting from a seccessionist movement. Congratulations, again, to our MU Law School team for their tremendous effort in tackling these complex international law issues.
