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 Jessup Competition is supported by a worldwide volunteer network of thousands of practicioners, legal scholars, and others who are devoted to international law and the Jessup Competition. This network, known as the Friends of the Jessup (FOJ), offers support by judging, coaching, administering, making financial contributions, offering legal expertise, and providing general administrative help for our competitions. The success of the Competition would be impossible without the enormous amount of time and energy that FOJs give to the competition every year. ILSA is incredibly grateful to all of the FOJ’s for their continuing support at all levels of the Competition.
