The Jean-Pictet competition is named in honor of the former director of the International Red Cross, who after World War II, was in charge of the preparatory work that led to the adoption of the Geneva Conventions and who is the editor of four-volume Commentaries on the Geneva Conventions.

Jean Pictet is an international competition, which is held every year by the ICRC. It is a prestigious competition involving students of internationally renowned universities of law, political science, military schools, aiming at improving their knowledge of international humanitarian law through role playing and simulations. It is an incredible experience, which teaches humanitarian law and also about oneself and how one would react under very stressful situations. The PCL has not only had the privilege of being the only college selected consecutively for five years to represent Pakistan in this international competition, but also that its students have won the competition and obtained positions and honors.

The team comprising of Mr. Moeen Ahmed Khan, student of PCL, 1999 – 2001 won the competition held that year in Cleveland USA.
