Regional Representatives

Chapter members may volunteer to represent ILSA in a certain geographical area as a regional representative. ILSA believes regional leadership helps to establish smaller cooperative networks in which local chapters can collaborate and provide more opportunities for their members. Job fairs, regional symposia and large social events are coordinated annually in each Region. Regional representatives are appointed by the student officers. There is no nomination requirement for this position.

Chapter Officers

Local chapter officers are responsible for running the day-to-day affairs of the International Law Society at their university, planning and organizing chapter events, delegating responsibilities to chapter members, and communicating with chapter members. Local chapter officers are also responsible for paying ILSA chapter dues, sending a membership list (including member contacts) to the Executive Office, and notifying chapter members about ILSA events.

Chapters and Individual Members

ILSA is comprised of chapters and individual members from around the world. Local ILSA chapters have found that working under the scope of a larger organization has allowed them to enhance the quality of their local programming and tap the larger network of global resources. ILSA supports student international law journals, advises students on opportunities in international law, and provides other general educational programs and support to ILSA chapters and individual members.
