INTERNATIONAL LAW WEEKEND 2012

International Law Weekend 2012 – the premier international law event of the fall season, to be held on October 25-27, 2012, in New York City. The overall theme of ILW 2012 is Ideas, Institutions, and Interests Dynamics of Change in International Law.

International Law Weekend is sponsored and organized by the American Branch of the International Law Association ("ABILA") – which welcomes new members from academia, the practicing bar, and the diplomatic world – and the International Law Students Association ("ILSA"). ILW 2012 will be held in conjunction with the 91st annual meeting of the American Branch.

The unifying theme for this year's meeting is to explore the mechanisms of change in international law. Panels may focus on key regions undergoing particularly dramatic change, for instance in the Middle East or China, and subject matter areas undergoing rapid change, such as tariffs and trade, human rights and humanitarian intervention, immigration, labor, public health, sustainable development and the environment. The meeting will be held in Manhattan at the Association of the Bar of the City of New York at 42 West 44th Street on Thursday evening, October 25, and at the Fordham Law School at Lincoln Center on October 26-27.

ILW 2012 is expected to attract an audience of more than 1,000 practitioners, academics, diplomats, members of the governmental and nongovernmental sectors, and most importantly, foreign policy and law students who are learning about the range of practice and career opportunities.
