The Fall Meeting of the American Bar Association Section of International Law opened yesterday afternoon in Miami, Florida. The meeting is always a great place for networking, learning, and simply enoying being in the company of other international lawyers. The registration number right now is just a shadow short of one thousand attendees from all over the globe.
This morning I am moderating a panel on Private International Law with speakers Hal Burman (U.S. State Department), David Stewart (Georgetown University Law Center, formerly with the U.S. State Department), and Louise Ellen Teitz (Hague Conference on Private International Law, on leave from Roger Williams University School of Law). My co-moderator is Lelia Mooney (Partners for Democratic Change, Washington, D.C.).
Today's luncheon speaker is Ellen Gracie Northfleet, former Chief Justice of the Federal Supreme Court of Brazil.
