Hertie School moot court team heads to world finals in Washington, DC

Visit the team’s blog for the latest updates on their progress throughout the week.

Good luck to the Hertie School moot court team, which is one of two German representatives at the international finals of the Jessup International Law Moot Court Competition in Washington, DC this week!

The week-long competition culminates on 7 April in a World Championship round, presided over by an esteemed panel of judges from the International Court of Justice: Judge Ronny Abraham, Judge Kirill Gevorgian and Judge Julia Sebutinde.

Last month, the team of five Hertie School students qualified for the international finals by beating 19 German law teams, taking second place at the German national competition in Kiel. Read more about their win here.

Best of luck to the five Master of Public Policy students on the team: Keri Hartman (US), Kris Best (Canada), Julian Georg (Germany), Rebecca Segall (South Africa) and Kasia Nalewajko (Poland). They have received coaching from Pierre Thielbörger, Professor for International Law; Mark Dawson, Professor for European Law and Governance; Postdoctoral Researcher Ana Bobić; and Research Associate Evi Kröker; in addition to coaching from the Humboldt University and University of Hamburg moot court teams, which attended the world championships last year.
