ABILA International Law Weekend 2020
The American Branch of the International Law Association is pleased to announce that registration is now open for International Law Weekend 2020, to be held virtually from October 22-24. The theme is International Law in Challenging Times.
From shifting political alliances to changing trade and economic relations, the world around us is undergoing profound transformations. The backlash against globalization has resulted in increased suspicion of multilateralism – and escalating populism. Yet, the world is more interconnected than ever. Our economic system relies on interconnectivity. To stop the spreading of coronavirus and address climate change, international coordination is paramount. What is the role of international law in this changing and often contradictory world? What could and should international lawyers do? How can international institutions become more successful both at addressing the challenges facing them and in winning state and popular support? ILW 2020 will respond to some of these questions and discuss how international law can help address these new challenges.
A number of panels will be designated for continuing legal education (CLE).
Free for students. Register here. Before Sept. 30, the fee is reduced to $75 for non-members, $50 for members. For more information, please visit the ABILA ILW website or download the ILW flyer, which is attached.
