George Mason Students Make Final Round of Jessup Regional

While the rest of the law school community was dancing the night away at the Barrister's Ball, four students were at Rutgers University in Camden, New Jersey, representing GMUSL at the regional rounds of the Phillip C. Jessup International Moot Court Competition. Jeremy Wilson (3D), Brendan Lynch (3D), Jill Maguire (2D) and Shejal Desai (2D) competed against 16 other teams, advancing all the way to the final round.

The Jessup Competition was founded at Harvard Law School in 1959 and is the world's largest moot court competition. Last year, teams from 539 law schools, representing 83 countries, participated. Shearman and Sterling, LLP, a global law firm, with more than 1,000 lawyers around the world, sponsored the competition.
