Want to get more involved with ILSA? They are now accepting applications for Student Directors! Student Directors serve as Members of the ILSA Board of Directors for a one year term. Learn more about the position and how to apply below.
About the position
Every spring, ILSA’s Board of Directors selects three law students from around the world to serve as Student Directors.
Student Directors serve as ILSA Board Members and attend ILSA’s Board of Directors meetings (in person or by conference call), and communicate with schools in their region to help improve and increase participation in the Jessup Competition and other ILSA programming.
Student Directors are also invited to attend the Jessup International Rounds in Washington, DC and potentially other events. A modest financial stipend to support travel to these events is provided by ILSA. Terms begin in late June 2020 and will end in June 2021.
To be eligible to become a Student Director, one must be a current law student and remain a law student during their term of service on ILSA’s Board. Student Directors are eligible for reselection so long as they remain students.
How to apply
To apply, submit your curriculum vitae and a personal statement describing your reasons for wanting to serve as a Student Director.
Applicants may also choose to include a statement(s) of support from a third party (maximum of two).
