Thematic Focus: Climate Change/Natural Disasters

This year's Jessup International Law Moot Court Competition focused on a case concerning the "Alfurnan migrants" and a sinking island scenario (see my earlier post).  The competition is now over and the official results are available on the ILSA web site.  The champions hail from the National Law School of India University.  Photos and a chronology of the various rounds can be found on the Jessup White & Case Facebook page.
