A team of Cooley Law School students competed in February against 36 other U.S. law school teams at the West Regional of the Philip C. Jessup International Law Moot Court Competition in Portland, Ore. On the strength of a 3-1 record in the preliminary oral argument rounds, the team qualified for the advanced rounds, earning a top 11 ranking. The team also earned a top ten award for the quality of written pleadings, taking home the award for seventh best Memorials. The Jessup problem involved the right of consular access for detained individuals, citizenship and the problem of statelessness, and the authority of the U.N. Security Council.
