The American Branch of the International Law Association (ABILA) and the International Law Students Association (ILSA) present “International Law Weekend 2013: Internationalization of Law and Legal Practice”
October 24-26, 2013
New York City
Join hundreds of members of the international legal community at the annual International Law Weekend (ILW) conference in conjunction with the 92nd Annual Meeting of the ABILA, October 24-26, 2013, in New York City. The theme of ILW 2013 is "Internationalization of Law and Legal Practice.” More than 40 expert panels will explore the mechanisms of change in international law. Panels will focus on key regions undergoing particularly dramatic change, and subject matter areas undergoing rapid change, such as tariffs and trade, human rights, immigration, labor, public health, sustainable development and the environment.
ILW begins Thursday evening, October 24, 2013 with a distinguished opening panel at the House of the Association of the Bar of the City of New York, 42 W. 44th Street, New York, NY. A reception will follow and is open to all conference attendees. The conference continues Friday, October 25 and Saturday, October 26 at Fordham University School of Law, 140 West 62nd Street, New York City. Friday’s activities feature a keynote address at Fordham University School of Law.
For ILW 2013, a number of ILW panels have been designated for mandatory continuing legal education credit (MCLE). The American Society of International Law has obtained accreditation for a maximum of 12 MCLE credits from Pennsylvania and California and is seeking accreditation from New York and Virginia. An attorney may also count Pennsylvania approved credits towards her or her New York CLE requirement credit through the Approved Jurisdiction policy without notifying the New York CLE Board.
Attendance at ILW is free for members of ABILA, ILSA, and other co-sponsoring organizations, as well as employees of the United Nations and students. For all others, there is a fee of $175.(mew)
