Announcement on the 2022 Jessup ONLINE German National Rounds in Heidelberg and all over Germany!

Dear Mooties and Coaches, Judges and Sponsors – dear friends of the Jessup,

we wish you a joyful, fulfilling, and successful year. Most importantly, we wish you and your loved ones a healthy year.

As promised, we held all options open for this year’s Jessup German National Round – our Rounds – figuring out possible scenarios from in-person to hybrid to all-online and taking into consideration all developments: daily updated numbers on infections, hospitalisation rates, progress of the vaccination campaign including booster vaccines, changing rules in different regions as well as nationally – and finally, the recent spread of the Omicron variant.

Omicron eventually led us to decide to change plans and hold another ONLINE Jessup. We just communicated this to ILSA and hereby announce to hold this year’s German National Rounds as an Online Moot.

We cannot (and do not want to) promise you that this year’s German National Rounds will be the same as any “pre-Covid” Jessup. It will not. We will do everything in our power to ensure the following:

  • – The 2022 Jessup German National Rounds will be held from 23 February to 26 February in Heidelberg and all over Germany.
  • – We are already working on an easily accessible, safe, and user-friendly solution suitable for the competition, the social events we hope you will join and the Jessup spirit of camaraderie, academic excellence, competitiveness and appreciation of fellow competitors.
  • – Therefore, we will soon send you emails to register on the Members-Only Part of our Website, from where you can proceed to all parts of this virtual competition

o Your Profile
o Court Rooms (pleadings and events will be held via Zoom)
o Groups, Chats and Newsfeed Functions
o Contacts details for and information about our Sponsoring Partners

We very much hope for your understanding and are already working on making this year’s Jessup – our Rounds – unforgettable!

Please feel free to contact us with any inquiries. We will be in touch with you as this year’s participants, judges and sponsors and inform you further about the details soon.

Best regards from Heidelberg
