Jessup Judges

The Jessup Competition is judged by an elite corps of volunteer attorneys. Judges are needed at all levels of the Competition (National, Friendly, and Global) 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

If you register your interest in judging National and Friendly 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 National Rounds. The most up-to-date information about National Rounds including dates, locations, and National Administrator email addresses can be found on our National Rounds web page. If you have questions about a specific National 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 Jessup Global Rounds we expect to confirm judges on a rolling basis from February through March 2021. We have limited judging slots available at the Jessup Global 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.

National and Qualifying Rounds Schedule

The specific dates of all 2021 National and Friendly Rounds will be updated on this page during the Competition Season as the Executive Office receives them. Questions can be sent to [email protected].

National and Friendly Rounds will be confirmed on a rolling basis. Once a Round is confirmed, we will list the date, location, and format (in-person or virtual). National and Friendly Competitions without these details have not yet been confirmed. Additional National or Friendly Rounds may be added over the next several weeks based on Jessup Team registration. As a reminder, all Teams that register, pay, and submit memorials will be invited to participate in the 2021 Jessup Global Rounds. We strongly encourage participation in National Rounds, but they will not qualify teams to compete in the Global Rounds.
