In September, AmCham launched the application process for the Chilean qualification stage of the annual Philip C. Jessup Law Moot Court Competition to be held on January 21-24.
This annual competition, which began six years ago and is open to Chilean law students, is organized by AmCham and the law firm Grasty Quintana Majlis & Cia. It aims to develop the English language oral and written skills of the competitors who must argue a hypothetical case before a court that emulates the International Court of Justice. The winning team will travel to Washington D.C. in March to represent Chile, competing with teams from around the world.
