Dear Friends of the Jessup,

ILSA is delighted to announce that Judge registration for the White & Case International Rounds of the 2011 Jessup Competition is now open! And, if you intended to but have not yet signed up to judge a national or regional competition, you may also indicate your availability for those levels of the Competition by completing the Volunteer Judge Application Form at http://www.ilsa.org/judges/judges2011.php.

---Judging at the White & Case International Rounds, March 20-26, 2011, in Washington, D.C.---

The White & Case International Rounds will take place March 20-26, 2011 at the Capital Hilton Hotel in Washington, D.C. If you would like to serve as a judge, please complete and submit the Volunteer Judge Application Form at http://www.ilsa.org/judges/judges2011.php. Registration for judging will remain open as long as space is available. Preferred times go quickly, so it is best to sign up soon (especially if your availability is limited). Based on registrants' indicated availability, we will create judging schedules and communicate those schedules to volunteers starting in February.

---Judging at Regional and National Rounds Worldwide---

Regional and National competitions in over 50 countries begin this month and continue through early March. Many competitions, including the U.S. Regionals, are still in need of volunteers to serve as judges. Please indicate your interest in judging a National or Regional competition on the Volunteer Judge Application Form at http://www.ilsa.org/judges/judges2011.php, or contact the relevant competition administrator listed at http://www.ilsa.org/jessup/national/na-schedule.pdf directly.

---Judging Memorials for Regional, National, and International Rounds---

Most memorial judging for Regional, National, and International Rounds takes place remotely and in advance of each competition. The memorials, grading instructions, and case materials are all sent to judges via email. Scores may be returned by fax or by email. If you would like to grade memorials for any stage of the Competition, please indicate your availability on the Volunteer Judge Application Form athttp://www.ilsa.org/judges/judges2011.php.

---Jessup Final Round DVDs---

ILSA's DVD collection now includes the past 11 years of Jessup World Championship Rounds (2000-2010). ILSA is offering a special 10% discount for the 2000-2009 10-year set, which includes a 10-disc DVD case and a complimentary copy of "From Nuremberg to Rome," also recently formatted to DVD. If you are interested in purchasing Jessup Championship Round DVDs, visit http://www.ilsa.org/merch/dvd.phpor contact Matt Szuminski at mszuminski@ilsa.org.

Thank you very much for your continued dedication to the Jessup. Without your generous donation of time and talent, the Jessup Competition would not be the global success that it is. I hope to see many of you at this year's National, Regional, and International Rounds.

Best Regards,
