Hello all, this event is a little far off still, however, if you like to plan things to perfection, this is a good international law event to put on your calendar. The ASIL Annual Meeting will be taking place at the Capitol Hill Hyatt Regency in Washington DC, from April 12-15. ASIL has issued a save-the-date, which you can find in the link below. We have an ASIL membership! Please use it to your networking and educational advantage! If you need help planning transportation or accommodations, I love that sort of thing, so email me. Hope you can make it!
If you are interested in receiving a certificate in International and Comparative Law, you have until the end of your fourth semester at VLS to do so (if you are a JD candidate; if you are any other kind of student, you have until the end of your second semester). The certificate is an indication of your focus on international law during your studies. In order to receive the International and Comparative Certificate, you must complete 18 credits in international, foreign, and comparative law courses, and you must maintain an overall cumulative GPA of 3.00 in courses used towards the certificate requirements. You do not need to complete any credits in addition to the 87 required for graduation, as all 18 will count towards your degree.
Check out the declaration form for greater detail, and if you’re interested, please contact me (firstname.lastname@example.org) to schedule a time to meet with the ICLP director.
This is a conference that will be taking place in New York, on the weekend of October 27-29. It is free to students, and an excellent networking opportunity, as well as a chance to visit New York during one of the best times to be there.
Here is a snippet of the Conference description:
“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 2016 will explore these issues through a diverse collection of engaging and provocative panels.”
Hop on the train, or carpool down together!
