International Law Weekend 2010: Oct 21-23
The American Branch of the International Law Association will be hosting its annual International Law Weekend in New York City, October 21-23. The full program can be found here, and includes some great panels on a range of topics under the theme “International Law and Institutions: Advancing Justice, Security and Prosperity.” (You might even see an OJ blogger or two!) In addition to the scholarly discussion, the organizers have put together what looks to be a really terrific career program for students:
On Saturday, October 23rd, beginning at 2:00 pm, the American Branch will launch a half-day program of speakers, break-out sessions, and other events designed to help law students gather information about career paths in different areas of international law and to gauge the future demand for lawyers with expertise in different aspects of private and public international law. In addition to the American Branch, the following organizations are participating in this career program: the American Bar Association Section of International Law, the American Society of International Law, Debevoise & Plimpton LLP, EarthRights International, the Frederick K. Cox International Law Center at Case Western Reserve University, Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer, Human Rights Watch, the International Law Students Association, Lawyers Committee on Nuclear Policy, Munger, Tolles & Olson LLP, New York Law School, the United Nations Office of Legal Affairs, Wayne State University Law School, and Willkie, Farr & Gallagher.
