ASIL’s Research Forum
I wanted to flag for interested readers the upcoming ASIL Research Forum in Washington, D.C., on October 23-24, 2015 I’ve been to a couple of the previous iterations and can attest that it’s a great way to catch up on some new scholarship and to hear a mix of new and old voices in the field. This year’s event looks to continue that tradition. Here’s how ASIL’s Executive Director Mark Agrast pitches the event:
This year’s Forum offers an exceptionally rich and diverse program, including expert-led discussions of 70 innovative papers, a luncheon program featuring remarks by former ICJ Judge and ASIL Honorary President Tom Buergenthal; and a ticketed dinner discussion of “Dispute Settlement with Iran: From the Hostage Crisis to the Nuclear Accord” with key negotiators from the U.S. Department of State.
The Forum will also include events specifically designed for students and new professionals. Our “International Law Career Panel and Speed Mentoring Event” will feature practitioners from a variety of international law fields and a networking reception, and two leading law librarians will lead a session on “International Law Research Strategies.”
This will be an outstanding opportunity for lawyers interested in the latest developments in international law to connect with thought leaders in their areas of interest.
If interested, you can see the full program and submit your registration here. I’ll be commenting on a few treaty papers on Saturday, so feel free to say hello if you see me there.
