The International Law Students' Association (ILSA), the organization that helps international law students around the world and that organizes the annual Philip C. Jessup International Law Moot Court Competition, would really appreciate your support. If you're looking to make a charitable donation before the end of the year, this group is worthy of your support. You can support specific Jessup teams, the Jessup competition in general, or the other good work that ILSA does throughout the year.
If you're a Jessup alumnus (in any capacity), you know what an important experience the Jessup competition was for you. Now it's time for you to help others enjoy that same experience and to help ensure the future of international law.
Here's some information from the ILSA Website:
ILSA relies on monetary donations from sponsors to cover the costs of administering the Jessup Competition and other educational programs for law students around the world. Your contribution will help bring together students from all parts of the world to participate in educational and cultural exchanges that will prepare them for successful careers as leaders in the field of international law. These students are the future of international law and with your help, we can insure that financial barriers do not prevent particpation in ILSA programs.
How will my money be used?
Donations to ILSA help provide critical assistance to students who would not otherwise be able to participate in ILSA activities. Both ILSA and the Jessup Competition have a growing presence in many developing nations where international legal education is still in its infancy. Funds will be used to directly support Jessup Teams, administer the Jessup competition worldwide, provide assistance to ILSA Chapters, and organize conferences and other educational programs.
Can I donate to a specific Jessup Team?
Yes. After you click the donate button, you can make a note in the comments section of the form. Your donation will be used to cover expenses such as travel, accommodations, food, and competition materials so that the team can focus on competing to the best of their ability. If you would like information about directly supporting a team that needs financial assistance contact email@example.com.
Is my donation tax deductible?
ILSA is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Your donations are tax deductible in the United States to the full extent allowable under U.S. Federal Law.
