I've just received a brochure from William & Mary Law School in Williamsburg, Virginia. The cover says "Shaping International Law," and it's a brochure that was mailed to members of the International Association of Law Schools (IALS) -- the international equivalent of the Association of American Law Schools.
Inside the brochure are profiles of seven faculty members from William & Mary who are "leading programs and engaged in critical scholarship, thus shaping the future of international law." The seven faculty members profiled are:
- Angela Banks
- Lan Cao
- Nancy Combs
- Charles H. Koch, Jr.
- Linda Malone
- Alemante Selassie
- Christine Warren
I know that we all have mixed feelings about these law school brochures, but I have to tell you that I do enjoy seeing brochures that promote international law professors, their scholarship, and (for me) their work in the field and in bar associations and other professional societies devoted to international law.
Congratulations to William & Mary on having the wisdom to highlight its international law faculty. (And yes, I suspect I'm going to be put on the mailing lists of many other law schools now.)
