The unifying theme for ILW 2016 is International Law 5.0.

The world is changing at an accelerating rate. From technological advances to environmental transformations, international lawyers are forced to confront emerging forces and new scenarios. Even settled principles of law are no longer settled. These tectonic shifts have been felt throughout the geography of international law. Legal professionals at every level – local, national, regional, and international – must change their practice to meet a changing world. Innovation will become necessary for survival. 

ILW begins Thursday evening, October 27, 2016 at 6:30 pm with an opening panel at the New York City Bar (42 W. 44th Street). Check-in and registration will open at 5:30 pm. The opening panel will be followed by a reception.

The conference continues Friday, October 28 and Saturday, October 29, 2016 at Fordham University School of Law (150 West 62nd Street). Check-in and registration will open at 8:00 am on both days and will remain open throughout the conference.
