To mark the 60th year of the Jessup, we are launching a new giving society for distinguished members of the international legal community. All Rise Society members will form the backbone of the Jessup Competition. Your support will ensure our continued ability to provide law students around the globe with the chance to connect with some of the world’s greatest legal minds, prepare them to enter the most competitive ranks of the legal profession, and nurture their commitment to the peaceful resolution of conflict through the rule of law.
