Jackson (WTO) Moot Court Competition. The students were selected after a three-step evaluation process: 1) written submissions, 2) oral rounds, and 3) virtual interviews. Starting in September, each team will meet (virtually) each week with their coaches to start preparing for their written submissions (due in January) and their oral arguments in preparation for the regional round of the competition in April of 2021. The effort to provide WTO and trade law training for the future Afghan and Sri Lankan lawyers is in line with our objective to increase WTO compliance in both countries which will in turn promote free trade and lead to economic growth in the region.
