The Philip C. Jessup Moot Court Competition was organized by a small group of students who believed that international law principles should be fully understood and recognized by law students around the globe. In 1962, shortly after the first Jessup Competition, students from several campuses founded the Association of Students of International Law Societies, which eventually evolved into the International Law Student Association (ILSA). The Philip C. Jessup Moot Court Competition is currently administered by ILSA.
