International Law Weekend 2014
October 23-25, 2014 -- New York City
Thee annual International Law Weekend (ILW) conference will take place October 23-25, 2014, in New York City. The theme of ILW 2014 is "International Law in a Time of Chaos.” The role of international law in conflict mitigation remains key – whether by building commercial links between states, fighting corruption, improving democratic governance, or providing methods for resolving international and ethnic disputes. ILW 2014 will seek to address the role of public and private international lawyers in each of these tasks.
ILW begins Thursday evening, October 23, 2014, 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, New York. A reception will follow and is open to all conference attendees. The conference continues Friday, October 24 and Saturday, October 25 at Fordham University School of Law, 150 West 62nd Street, New York, New York. Friday’s activities feature a keynote address at Fordham University School of Law.
For ILW 2014, 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 10.5 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, United Nations employees, students, and co-sponsoring organizations. For all others, there is a fee of $175.
