$60 for Sixty Campaign

We’re celebrating the 60th year of the Jessup Competition! Help us make this Jessup season spectacular by contributing to our $60 for Sixty Campaign.

As a member of the Jessup extended “family,” your life in international law may well have begun at the Jessup. For most Jessup alums, the competition opened the door into a community of people who share a belief that international law is worth fighting for. Now that the giving season is upon us, here’s your chance to ensure support for the next generation of Jessup Competitors.

In honor of sixty years of the Jessup, we are asking for donations of $60 or a multiple thereof (e.g. $120, $240, etc.). Your donation to the $60 for Sixty Campaign will help foster the expansion of the Jessup in new regions and law schools. Donors will be acknowledged on ILSA’s website.
