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.

Please take a look at the schedules for both the International Qualifying Rounds and the US Regionals. The Executive Office updates the pages throughout the year as the competitions are scheduled. The 2017 White & Case International Rounds will take place April 9 - 15, 2017, at the Hyatt Regency on Capitol Hill.

Judges Registration for the 2017 Competition is now open and can be found below! Judges are welcome to register throughout the season.
