A team of Australian law students won the top prize at the Philip C. Jessup International Law Moot Court Competition this weekend in Washington, D.C., according to a news release. The students, from Australian National University in Canberra, are Ellen Chapple, Sarah Lynch, Rohan Kapur, Samuel Thorpe and Sneha Rangnath.

This year’s competition, sponsored by White & Case LLP, included 127 teams from 76 countries. This year marked the largest international rounds in the 51-year history of the competition. Students presented written or oral arguments on an international law question dealing with issues of sovereignty, the right to self-determination and the lawfulness of measures taken to protect the economic resources of a state.

The championship round was held at the Capital Hilton in Washington, D.C., on March 27 and judged by Judges Stephen M. Schwebel and Dame Rosalyn Higgins, both former presidents of the International Court of Justice, and Harold Koh, legal adviser to the State Department.
