The bench for the final rounds of the competition was presided over by former Chief Justice of India, Justice Altamas Kabir and other eminent jurists and academicians, it said.

The release said the Jessup moot court competition is the oldest annual event. As many as 603 teams from 93 countries are registered for participation for 2015 in which student teams present oral and written arguments on a hypothetical international law case to a simulated International Court of Justice.

Elated at the performance of the students of the varsity, Professor C Raj Kumar, Vice Chancellor of JGU, said this was an extraordinary achievement for the country and also for the university for which they are proud of their students.

"I would like to applaud the team of students from JGLS who brought this amazing laurel to the University as well as recognise the contribution of the faculty members for their leadership and initiative to mooting programmes at JGLS," he said.

"It is a truly remarkable achievement of the JGLS students who have been working very hard for the last several months to have won against the best law schools in India and to be selected to represent India in the World Championship rounds scheduled to take place in Washington DC, USA this April," he said.

The JGLS team members who achieved this distinction are Mohanakrishna C, Samhith Malladi, Nisha Raman and Sanjika Dang.
