Jessup 2024 Basic Materials are here!

The Jessup 2024 Basic Materials are now available on our Competitors page under “Jessup Problem and Basic Materials” and on your team homepages. These basic materials are intended to serve as the starting point for your Jessup 2024 research. However, teams are encouraged to conduct research beyond these basic materials. In a change of practice from previous years, ILSA will not be issuing a second batch of Basic Materials; instead, we will update this list from time to time. We encourage all teams to visit the basic materials page frequently to make sure that you have the latest materials. If you have any questions regarding basic materials, please email [email protected].
