Full results for Jessup international rounds posted

Here are the results of the international rounds of the 50th Annual Phillip C. Jessup International Law Moot Court Competition, which took place in Washington, D.C. March 22-28. American law schools didn't give a particularly great showing; only Columbia Law School made it as far as the octafinals before losing to Universidad Catolica Andres Bello from Venezuela.

But there was one bright spot for the U.S.: Suyash Paliwal of Columbia won Best Oralist of the Preliminary Rounds.

Although I have results from some of the the six U.S. Super Regional rounds, I don't have them all. If I'm able to collect complete information, I'll post here...
