The Young Lawyers Section of the Chicago Bar Association announced that it is forming a new committee on International and Foreign Law. (There was already an International and Foreign Law Committee at the CBA -- this new committee is one in the Young Lawyers Section.) The committee will examine public and private international law issues, including U.S. and foreign law aspects of international business transactions, litigation, arbitration, taxation of foreign income, foreign investment laws, treaties, and international organizations.
The chairs for the coming year will be Kyle Olson, John Tufano Jr., and Maya Ganguly. The committee will meet regularly on the third Monday of the month.
If you're in Chicago, take advantage of this opportunity. If you're not in Chicago, check with your own local bar association about starting an international and foreign law committee if you don't have one already.
