The International Law Students Association is a non-profit association of students and lawyers who are dedicated to the promotion of international law. ILSA provides students with opportunity to study, research, and network in the international legal arena. The organization's activities include academic conferences, publications, the global coordination of student organizations, and the administration of the Philip C. Jessup International Law Moot Court Competition.
The White & Case International Rounds of the Jessup Competition is the culminating event of the Jessup Season. Held each spring in Washington, D.C., the White & Case International Rounds are both an educational experience and cultural extravaganza. The weeklong schedule of events is filled with competitive matches, interesting panel discussions, and festive social events.
The 2017 White & Case International Rounds will take place April 9 - 15, 2017, at the Hyatt Regency on Capitol Hill. More updates will be available as the 2017 Jessup Competition Season unfolds.
