The ALICE collaboration at the CERN Large Hadron Collider reports the first measurement of the inclusive differential jet cross section at mid-rapidity in \pp\ collisions at \sqrts\ = 2.76 TeV, with integrated luminosity of 13.6 \invnb. Jets are measured over the transverse momentum range 20 to 125 \gev\ and are corrected to the particle level. Calculations based on Next-to-Leading Order perturbative QCD are in good agreement with the measurements. The ratio of inclusive jet cross sections for jet radii \rr\ = 0.2 and \rr\ = 0.4 is reported, and is also well reproduced by a Next-to-Leading Order perturbative QCD calculation when hadronization effects are included.
