Congratulations to the newly-elected Chair of the AALS Section on International Law, Diane Marie Amann, Professor of Law at the University of California, Davis, School of Law and Director of the California International Law Center at King Hall. She's a founding contributor to IntLawGrrls Blog (which is one of the best international law blogs around, after this one of course! It is one of the only "other blogs" that we link to right now in the left hand column). Professor Amann is a well-recognized international law scholar, particularly in the field of international law and terrorism. The section will have a great year under her leadership.
[I'm also proud to have also been elected as an officer of the section, and I'm happy as well that Professor Cindy Buys of Southern Illinois University School of Law (another of our blog editors) was also elected to the AALS International Law Section's executive committee.]
Professor Amann follows Professor James R. Maxeiner of the University of Baltimore School of Law, who chaired the section this past year and served as moderator of the section's panel in San Diego.
