1 – 5 February 2017 White & Case LLC and Threefold Legal Advisors LLC are organising the Russian National Championship of the Philip C. Jessup International Law Moot Court Competition. Students from 40 universities from all over Russia will come to Moscow to participate in the Competition. Partners and lawyers from international law firms and major Russian companies, judges of the UN International Court of Justice, European Court of Human Rights, International Criminal Court and other international tribunals, as well as professors from leading Russian and foreign universities will be assessing students’ legal knowledge and oral skills. This year’s problem addresses issues of transboundary aquifers, basic human rights, including the rights to food and water, and what happens when alleged violations of said rights generate refugee outflows.

Preliminary and Advanced Rounds will take place at the Law Faculty of the Moscow State University between 1 and 4 February.

- G.-Matteo Vaccaro-Incisa Investment Arbitration: Evil or Scapegoat? New Trends in Investment Treaty Making

- Marija Đorđeska General Principles of Law and the Science of International Law.

Final Round and Closing Ceremony will take place at the MGIMO University on 5 February.

- Christina Cerna, Adjunct Professor of Law at Georgetown University Law Center (Washington DC, USA);

- Francesco Francioni, Professor, emeritus, of International Law at the European University Institute (Florence, Italy), Professor of International Law at LUISS University (Rome, Italy);
