Jessup International Law Moot Court Competition has a wide influence and it is known as the "Olympic Competition" of the World Moot Court. Every year, hundreds of teams from more than 100 countries participate in the competition. The basic process is that qualification trials are conducted in countries (regions) and then the qualified teams go to Washington for the international finals. The competition requires the participating students to use English to conduct legal argumentation on the frontier issues of international law, which are often inconclusive or lack clear legal provisions. The competition is divided into two parts: writing English pleadings and making oral English debates in the court. By participating in the competition, the participants will get practice in international law, legal English, data analysis, and legal argumentation. The Jessup International Law Moot Court Competition in mainland China has been held for 17 sessions. Judges, lawyers, scholars and officials of international organizations from all over the world have long been employed as judges of the competition. In recent years, more and more top Chinese and international law firms in "Magic circle" have begun to pay attention to and sponsor the mainland trials of this competition.
