Student Directors

What is a Student Director?

Every Spring, ILSA’s Board of Directors selects three law students from around the world to serve as Student Directors. Student Directors serve as ILSA Board Members and attend ILSA’s Board of Directors meetings (in person or by conference call), and communicate with schools in their region to help improve and increase participation in the Jessup Competition and other ILSA programming. Student Directors are also invited to attend International Law Weekend in New York City and the Jessup International Rounds in Washington DC. Modest financial support for travel to these events is provided by ILSA. Terms begin in the summer and run for a period of one year.

Who is eligible to become a Student Director?

To be eligible to become a Student Director, one must be a current student during their full term. Student Directors are eligible for reselection so long as they remain students.

How to become a Student Director?

If you are interested in becoming a Student Director submit your curriculum vitae, personal statement describing your reasons for seeking to serve as a Student Director, and statement(s) of support from a third party (maximum of three) to [email protected] by March 15, 2018.

Students may nominate themselves or be nominated by another.

Candidates will be reviewed by the Nominating Committee and voted on by the Board of Directors at the Spring Meeting.

How will candidates be evaluated?

Student Directors will be evaluated according to the following criteria:

  • The commitment of the candidates to ILSA’s goals;
  • The competence and skills demonstrated by the candidates in their other activities;
  • The undertakings of the candidates that, absent an unanticipated emergency, they will in fact commit to completing their terms of office if they are selected; and
  • The need for the leadership of the ILSA to reflect the diversity of its constituencies, in terms of geography, nationality, background, ethnicity, gender, religion, culture, and other variables.
