The International Law Students Association is a non-profit association of students and lawyers who are dedicated to the promotion of international law. ILSA provides students with opportunity to study, research, and network in the international legal arena. The organization's activities include academic conferences, publications, the global coordination of student organizations, and the administration of the Philip C. Jessup International Law Moot Court Competition.
Join hundreds of members of the international legal community at the annual International Law Weekend (ILW) conference, October 23-25, 2014, in New York City. The theme of ILW 2014 is "International Law in a Time of Chaos”. The role of international law in conflict mitigation remains key – whether by building commercial links between states, fighting corruption, improving democratic governance, or providing methods for resolving international and ethnic disputes. ILW 2014 will seek to address the role of public and private international lawyers in each of these tasks.

For those interested in attending our 2nd Annual IBA/ILSA Conference in London, registration is still open!
Registered attendees will be able to attend a slate of thought provoking panels and listen to Dr. Geert van Castelr's keynote speech on the role of science in international law.
Participants in the Jessup are encouraged to attend the Jessup Compromis Discussion Panel, where a panel of experts will discuss the legal issues surrounding the 2015 Jessup Competition specifically within the context of the facts of the 2015 Compromis.
