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 the Jessup International Rounds in Washington, DC and potentially other events. 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.
