Attorney Crystal Pound will serve as a judge at the annual Jessup International Moot Court Competition on Friday, March 1 at the University of Iowa College of Law. Ms. Pound will be judging for the finalist team from the 2L (2nd year students) class of competitors, with the winner advancing as next year's 3L (3rd year students) traveling team.
The moot court competition began in 1866, when the school required students to argue cases in moot court in addition to their regular coursework. The Iowa College of Law’s Jessup Competition is modeled after the Phillip C. Jessup International Competition hosted by the International Law Students Association— the world’s largest moot court competition. Students are given the opportunity to write and argue cutting edge legal issues in the field of international law. The winners of the upcoming Jessup Competition will form the University of Iowa International Jessup team during the 2019–2020 academic year.
Crystal Pound is a litigation attorney at Simmons Perrine Moyer Bergman PLC where she primarily practices business and commercial litigation, labor and employment law and construction and design practices.
