The 2014 International Law Weekend will be held from October 23-25, 2014 in New York City. ILW is sponsored and organized by the American Branch of the International Law Association (ABILA) and the International Law Students Association (ILSA). This annual conference attracts an audience of more than one thousand practitioners, academics, diplomats, and students. The theme for this year's meeting is “International Law in a Time of Chaos” and panel proposals (relating to that theme, or not) can be submitted online by April 23, 2014 by clicking here.
Please provide a title, description, and the names and affiliations of the chair and proposed speakers as well as the proposal format (debate, roundtable, lecture, etc.). Formats should include presenters with diverse experiences and perspectives.
ILW 2014 will be held in conjunction with the annual meeting of the American Branch in Manhattan at the Association of the Bar of the City of New York at 42 West 44th Street on Thursday evening, October 23, and at the Fordham Law School at Lincoln Center on October 24-25, 2014. We expect an audience that will include practitioners, professors, UN diplomats, business leaders, federal and state government officials, NGO leaders, writers, journalists, and interested citizens. This year, we plan to have a broad array of public international law topics, but will also have dedicated tracks of private international law topics in each program slot. Questions regarding ILW 2014 can be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Members of the ILW 2014 Program Committee are:
- Tamara Cummings-John (Legal Officer, United Nations Office of Legal Affairs);
- Davis Robinson (Former Legal Adviser, U.S. Department of State);
- Stephen Shapiro (Managing Partner, BSR Investments);
- Vivian Shen (Programs Director, International Law Students Association);
- David Stewart (President-Elect, American Branch of the International Law Association); and
- Ruth Wedgwood (President, American Branch of the International Law Association).
Unfortunately ILW conflicts this year with the Fall Meeting of the American Bar Association Section of International Law, which will meet in Buenos Aires. But if you're not planning on going to Argentina, the ILW in New York will be well worth the investment of your time.
