ASIL Mid-Year Meeting in New York

by Kristen Boon

International lawyers here in New York are gearing up for ASIL’s mid-year Meeting.  The program is available here, which kicks off tonight with a reception and talk at the UN.

I’m delighted to have co-chaired the Research Forum with Tim Meyer from Georgia this year.   Tim and I assembled a wonderful Research Forum Committee this year, who conducted a double-blind selection of papers on the basis of abstracts submitted in June.  The committee is composed of:

Karima Bennoune, University of California- Davis School of Law

Donald Earl Childress III, Pepperdine University School of Law

Eyal Benvenisti, Tel Aviv University

Duncan Hollis, Temple University Beasley School of Law

Katerina Linos, University of California-Berkeley School of Law

Research Committee members will be serving as panel chairs at the conference.  The papers to be discussed are available in a Dropbox folder on the ASIL Midyear Meeting page.

You’ll see cutting edge scholarship on topics ranging from international investment law to the future of international criminal tribunals.   The purpose of the forum is to provide scholars with feedback on works-in-progress, which is an important complement to the ASIL Annual Meeting, where panel presentations on specific topics are the norm.

The meeting comes after an exciting week at the UN, with the Sixth Committee considering the International Law Commission’s latest report.   If you’re interested in what has been happening at the UN, the work program is available here, and the formal sessions are available for viewing (webcast) on the UN Website making it easy to follow the discussions from outside of the building.
