The Univeristy of Pretoria has a stirling record at the Jessup.

The University of Pretoria has once again won the National Rounds of the 59th edition of the Philip C Jessup International Moot Court Competition. After facing the University of the Western Cape and the University of Johannesburg, the team from the University of Pretoria was emerged as the overall winners. They also won all available categories: Over-all Best Team and Best Written Submissions and Thomas White was awarded the prize for the Best Oralist. Jessup is the world's largest moot court competition, with participants from over 645 law schools in 95 countries. The Competition is a simulation of a fictional dispute between countries before the International Court of Justice, the judicial organ of the United Nations. This year, the case dealt with questions of nuclear disarmament obligations, maritime warfare and the validity of arbitral awards. Teams prepared oral and written pleadings arguing both the applicant and respondent positions of the case

The University of Pretoria’s team consisted of Mary-Ann Gettliffe (LLM), Sohela Surajpal (LLB II), Rohula Bilankulu (LLB II) and Thomas White (LLB IV). The team was coached by Gift Kgomosotho, a former Jessup champion and Best Oralist who has been appointed by ICLA.

The team has earned the rights to represent South Africa at the international rounds of the Jessup in April 2018 in Washington DC. In 2017, the University of Pretoria finished 16th in the Octo-finals of the international rounds, ranking higher than some 600 law faculties across the globe.
