Friends of the Jessup


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.
