CALOOCAN CITY, Nov. 4 (PIA) -- The University of the Philippines College of Law once again set the bar in moot court competitions when its students received awards at the recently held 31st National Convention of the Association of Law Students of the Philippines, Inc. (ALSP).

UP Law students were honored at the 2020 Law Students Awards organized by the ALSP for their recent achievements in moot court competitions.  The Moot and Debate Awards were given to the UP Law Jessup Team under the Group Category, and to Barzillai Josh Banogon and Vanayan Odsey under the Individual Category. Professor Rommel Casis coached the law students.

The UP Law Jessup Team emerged as International Champion of the 2020 “After Jessup” International Moot Court in September 2020, besting other Jessup national champion teams from different world regions.  Before this, the Team composed of Leslie Diane Torres, Abelardo Hernandez, Anton Miguel Sison, Therese Ravina, and Bianca Isabella Ortiz, won as champions of the National Rounds of the Jessup competition in February 2020 and clinched several oralist and memorial awards.
