The American Bar Association Section of International Law meets this week in Washington, D.C. for its Annual Conference (an event previously known as the Spring Meeting). The SIL Annual Conference is well known for its high-quality panels and presentations, incredible networking opportunities, and social events in extraordinary venues. Whether or not you're also here in D.C. this week you should plan to attend the SIL 2020 Annual Meeting in New York.
One of the panels on Thursday morning attracting a standing-room-only audience was on the Codification of Private International Law Principles on Jurisdiction and the Recognition and Enforcement of Judgments by the Hague Conference on Private International Law. The panel was organized by the Section of International Law's Committee on International Litigation and co-sponsored by the Section's Canada Committee. The informative and engaging panel featured some of the biggest names in the world of private international law.
