Higgs & Johnson is pleased to support the Bahamian team competing in the Jessup Moot in Washington, D.C. for its second year.  Jessup is the world's largest moot court competition, with participants from over 550 law schools in more than 80 countries. The competition is a simulation of a fictional dispute between countries before the International Court of Justice, the judicial organ of the United Nations.  One team is allowed to participate from every eligible school.  Teams prepare oral and written pleadings arguing both the applicant and respondent positions of the case.

The Bahamian team finished within the top 20 percent, once again advancing to the international rounds.  In their preliminary rounds, they won against Iraq in both memorials and orals and won against Israel in the memorials.  Team member Theominique Nottage noted, “We were happy with our performance and look forward to continuing and improving upon the Jessup tradition in the UWI/COB LL.B program”.

Higgs & Johnson Partner Surinder Deal said, “We wish to congratulate the team on its success at this year’s moot.  The firm is happy to be a sponsor and recognizes the important role the private sector plays in assisting our students to compete on an international stage.”
