- Virtual Regional Rounds
ELSA and the Academic Board of the John H Jackson Moot Court Competition have been closely following the rapid developments with respect to the spread of the COVID-19 (“Coronavirus”). Our hearts go out to all individuals and communities that have been affected. The virus and the response to it has resulted in significant disruptions in international travel including restrictions on travel to and from certain affected areas in the whole world.
In light of these extraordinary circumstances ELSA decided that all the Regional Rounds will be moving to a virtual moot using Microsoft Teams video conference. The teams will be personally informed about the dates and specifics of the Regional Round they have been allocatedto. Please find below the amended rules of the Competition for the Virtual Regional Rounds.
- Final Oral Round
At the moment there are no plans to cancel the Final Oral Round in Geneva, but we will continue to monitor developments with the World Health Organization and the Swiss authorities and keep all participants apprised if the situation changes. The final decision about Final Oral Round in Geneva will be made by the end of April.
