The American Bar Association Section of International Law is holding the second day of its Section Retreat in Chicago. More than 150 lawyers from around the world are attending the retreat, which is being held at the Union League Club of Chicago.
Laurel Bellows, the incoming President of the American Bar Association, addressed the section leadership yesterday. She shared some of her priority focus areas for the coming ABA year, including a focus on preventing human trafficking (internationally and within the United States) and cybersecurity.
The American Bar Association holds its annual meeting in Chicago from today until next Tuesday. There are many international activities of interest to lawyers and law students.
