The unifying theme for ILW 2019 is Why International Law Matters

In recent years, the international legal system has been challenged at home and abroad. Growing nationalism, shifts in geo-political power, deepening economic inequality, climate change, and a global migration crisis have generated cracks in the established international order. These schisms have been exacerbated by other factors, including the power of private corporations over speech platforms and personal data and the rapid progression of new technologies such as artificial intelligence and machine learning. Even our discipline and profession are challenged with growing calls for inclusivity of diverse voices. Can the international legal system adapt to address these profound developments?

Organized by the American Branch of the International Law Association, International Law Weekend 2019 (ILW 2019) – the premier international law event of the fall season – is scheduled for October 10-12, 2019 in New York City. The conference will be held at the New York City Bar Association (42 West 44th Street) on October 10, 2019 and at Fordham Law School (150 West 62nd Street) on October 11-12, 2019.
