ILW 2015 will be held at the Association of the Bar of the City of New York at 42 West 44th Street on Thursday, November 5 and at the Fordham Law School at Lincoln Center on November 6-7, 2015.

The unifying theme for ILW 2015 is Global Problems, Legal Solutions: Challenges for Contemporary International Lawyers. ILW 2015 will explore the many roles that international law plays in addressing global challenges. The aim is to provide an opportunity for discussion and debate about the ways in which international law provides fundamental tools and mechanisms to address emerging global issues.  ILW 2015 will offer engaging panels on current problems and innovative solutions in both public and private international law. 

ILW 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). This annual conference attracts an audience of more than eight hundred academics, diplomats, members of the governmental and nongovernmental sectors, and foreign policy and law students.
