I just received the following announcement. Looks like a terrific program - it's a very knowledgeable group and includes Chen Guangcheng.

This year's International Law Weekend features two stellar China-law panels. The American Branch of the International Law Association and the International Law Students Association are sponsoring this October 25-27 conference in cooperation with the Leitner Center for Law and Justice at Fordham Law School.
- ILW opens on Thursday evening, October 25 at the home of the Association of the Bar of the City of New York (42 West 44th St.) with a plenary panel discussion on The Rise of China and the Rule of (International) Law, featuring Amb. Winston Lord, Jerome Cohen (NYU), Elizabeth Economy (Council on Foreign Relations) and John Crowley (Davis Polk). Benjamin Liebman (Columbia) will chair and moderate.
- The following afternoon, Friday, October 26 at 3, Chen Guangcheng and Ira Belkin (both of NYU) will discuss Lawyers and China's Future. This panel -- and the rest of the Friday and Saturday programs -- will be held at Fordham Law School.
Program details and registration information are available here.
