The American Branch of the International Law Association (ABILA) and the International Law Students Association (ILSA) welcome you to the annual International Law Weekend (ILW) conference in New York City, an exciting event that brings together hundreds of practitioners, law professors, members of governmental and nongovernmental organizations, and students. The theme of ILW 2013 is "Internationalization of Law and Legal Practice”. More than 35 expert panels will explore the mechanisms of change in international law. Panels may focus on key regions undergoing particularly dramatic change, and subject matter areas undergoing rapid change, such as tariffs and trade, human rights, immigration, labor, public health, sustainable development and the environment. 

ILW begins Thursday evening, October 24, with a distinguished opening panel at the House of the Association of the Bar of the City of New York, 42 W. 44th Street. A reception sponsored by the Permanent Mission of Mexico to the United Nations will follow and is open to all conference attendees.

The conference continues Friday, October 25 and Saturday, October 26 at Fordham University School of Law, 140 West 62nd Street. Friday’s activities feature a keynote address at Fordham University School of Law. This event is open to all conference attendees. A lunch, free and open to all conference attendees on a first-come, first-served basis, will be provided by the Leitner Center for International Law and Justice in the Platt Atrium at 12:30 pm.
