About

The Jean-Pictet Competition is a unique training in international law for students. Its objective - to take the law out of the books. 2021 editions 3-10 April 2021, Durrës (Albania) and September-October 2021, Denpasar (Indonesia) Update on 11 November 2020: the Committee for the Jean-Pictet Competition is proud to inform you that nearly 80 teams from 36 countries have applied to the 2021 Jean-Pictet Competition. This figure leaves a few seats available, especially for Francophone teams at the April session (Albania), with certain possibilities of support for the applicant teams fulfilling the conditions of eligibility. A few applications from Anglophone teams may also be taken into account, both for the April session (Albania) and the September-October session (Indonesia), with more limited support though. Teams from countries that have never sent a team, or have not sent one for a long time, are particularly welcome to apply. The same goes for teams from under-represented regions in the 2021 Competition (especially Africa, North America, Central and Eastern Europe, and the Middle East).
