The International Law Society (ILS) is a chapter of the International Law Students Association (ILSA), a multinational student organization that hosts the Jessup Competition and International Law Weekend conference in New York. ILSA’s structure grants autonomy to its global chapters to meet their unique needs locally while making available to them an international network of pooled academic and organization resources. The U of C Chapter is a growing club looking to expand its events and student opportunities. If you’re interested we’d love to hear from you!

  • To bring together law students who have a shared interest in international law, and

  • To provide law students with opportunities to network and hone a global perspective.

  • Informal fireside coffee chats with faculty working in areas of international law;

  • International Exchange Social where students can meet current law students on exchange at the faculty and returning U of C students to learn more about going on exchange
