As reported by the new (and affiliated) International Law Prof Blog (per Mark Wojcik), hearty congratulations are in order for Wash U law professor Leila Sadat (who is also a Tulane law grad),
shown left. She will be the next president of the International Law Students Association. ILSA is the group responsible for, among other activities, running the Jessup moot court competitions. It will also hold an extensive conference (for students and others) on Oct. 2-4, 2008, at Vermont Law School, "Understanding Genocide."
If tradition means anything, Wojcik hints, Sadat will soon be appearing on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. Also, Wojcik notes, Sadat will be the first woman to hold the position at ILSA.
My school, Tulane, has also been well represented by the student-officers of ILSA. The current student president, for example, is our own Robert Magouirk. Congratulations, all.
