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 International Bar Association (IBA), ILSA’s Global Partner, is now offering student membership. Through its student membership programme the IBA uses the experience contained within the organisation, to help bridge the gap between academia and professional legal practice.
