Jessup Judges

The Jessup Competition is judged by an elite corps of volunteer attorneys. Judges are needed at all levels of the Competition (Qualifying and International) to evaluate and score the written and oral pleadings of the competitors. In most jurisdictions, study or practice in the field of international law, or prior experience in the Jessup Competition, is preferred, but not required.

Judge Registration


You only need to register to judge if you did not register last year. If you did register to judge last year, simply log in to your Judge profile and update your preferences for Jessup 2021. Email [email protected] with any questions or concerns.

If you register your interest in judging Qualifying Rounds, we will share your contact information with the National Administrators in the locations in which you indicated your interest in judging. The National Administrators will be communicating with and scheduling judges for Qualifying Rounds. The most up-to-date information about Qualifying Rounds including dates, locations, and National Administrator email addresses can be found on our Qualifying Rounds web page. If you have questions about a specific Qualifying Round, we encourage you to contact the National Administrator in the first instance. However, you can also email [email protected] with questions or concerns.

If you register your interest in judging the 2021 International Rounds we expect to confirm judges on a rolling basis from February through March 2021. We have limited judging slots available at the International Rounds, and may not be able to confirm all applicants to judge. Additional information will be sent to International Rounds judges as they are confirmed. We appreciate in advance your patience with this process. Please contact us at [email protected] with any questions.
