On Friday, September 28, the Washington Foreign Law Society, the American Society of International Law, and cooperating committees of the ABA Section of International Law will present a special breakfast roundtable discussion with legal representatives from both the US Department of State and Department of the Treasury. The panelists will discuss the significant new sanctions imposed under Executive Order 13622 and under the Iran Threat Reduction and Syrian Human Rights Act of 2012 (ITRSHRA). In particular, the panel will discuss the issues associated with how these new sanctions will be implemented and enforced, with time set aside for questions from the audience. The program will be off the record. The program will include a light breakfast. Fees are $5.00 for members of any of the sponsoring organizations and $10.00 for those not members. Advance registration is required (e.g., ASIL members should register through ASIL). Guests should arrive at Holland & Knight, 800 17th Street, NW, Washington, DC by 8:15 a.m. as the program will start promptly at 8:30 a.m.
