Students at the University of San Francisco sold $200 worth of brownies and cookies to help send some Iraqi law students to an international moot court competition. Kelly Fair and Lauren Monson organized the sale in their capacity as president and vice president of USF’s International Law Society. USF School of Law alumnus Lawrence Jacobson, of Cohen & Jacobson in Redwood City, Calif., is matching the amount — and other law students around the nation have launched similar efforts. The final round of the Philip C. Jessup International Law Competition will be held in the United States this year. Funds raised will cover registration fees and travel expenses for four Iraqi students. Sponsors said they saw the opportunity to help Iraqi students develop a stronger foundation in international law. Fair, a second-year student, is also a member of USF’s Jessup team headed for the western regional competition on Feb. 25 in Seattle. The team’s other members are second-year students Tamalca Harris and Marco Balducci and third-year student Valerio Romano. This year’s topics include nuclear dumping, marine pollution and the obligation to protect other states from harm.
