For our readers who will be attending the annual meeting of the American Association of Law Schools (AALS) in January in Washington, DC, we want to bring your attention to a couple of events of interest to international law professors.
First, on Thursday, January 5, there is an all-day program on "North American Legal Developments - 2011 and Beyond." The program features discussions of issues concerning the Northwest Passage, the Arctic Ocean and the North American Free Trade Agreeement (NAFTA). The first two topics will include a focus on US ratification of the Law of the Sea Treaty. The NAFTA panel will focus on trade issues, as well as the intersection between trade and labor and environmental issues. The program is being co-sponsored by the International Law Section and the North American Cooperation Section. The program is scheduled to be held in Delaware Suite B, Lobby Level, Washington Marriott Wardman Park Hotel.
Second, on Saturday morning, January 7, the Pacific McGeorge School of Law is continuing is tradition of hosting a breakfast for international law professors and members of the American Society of International Law Teaching Interest Group. The breakfast is 7-8:30 am in Nathan Hale, Wardman Tower at the same hotel. Contact Frank Gevurtz at Pacific McGeorge to RSVP or for more information.
