A panel of five experienced international law professors will address the very important topic of teaching International Law during challenging times on Friday, October 2 at 1:30 pm EST. International Law has occupied a less central role within American law schools' curricula. At many law schools, International Law is taught as an upper-level elective course; thus, numerous American law school students graduate without ever having had exposure to International Law. It is this panel's starting premise that International Law is a crucial course of study for every law school student; that International Law occupies a very important place in every lawyer's practice; that International Law should be taught more frequently at all law schools in the U.S.; and that during the Covid-19 pandemic - a challenging time for all - the role of International Law should be re-emphasized and the course taught to all students. This panel will thus focus on exchanging insights in teaching International Law, with a particular emphasis on best practices, resources, and challenges regarding remote, online or hybrid teaching of International Law. The panel is sponsored by the American Society of International Law, Teaching International Law Interest Group.
