John H. Jackson Moot Court Competition
The John H. Jackson Moot Court Competition (formerly known as ELSA Moot Court Competition or EMC²) on WTO Law is a simulated hearing in the World Trade Organization (WTO) dispute settlement system organized by the European Law Students' Association (ELSA) with the support of the WTO. Participating teams represent both the complainant and respondent parties to the case by presenting oral submissions in front of a panel.
The aim of the competition is to encourage further development on the subject matter in the curriculum of academic institutions and contribute to the ongoing discussion about globalisation in the context of the WTO agreements.
The competition is named after American law professor John Howard Jackson, one of the chief architects of the WTO.
