ASIL / ILA meeting program now online

am14_header_sitetop_1Having posted a while back on early registration, I write to report: Now available is the full program for the American Society of International Law Annual Meeting/International Law Association Biennial Conference, set for April 7 to 12 in Washington, D.C., at the Ronald Reagan Building & International Trade Center, on Pennsylvania Avenue a few blocks from the White House.

Numbering more than a hundred pages, the program, available in full here, details the more than 250 persons, from A (Frederick M. Abbott) to Z (Marten Zwanenberg) scheduled to speak at myriad sessions. Besides my certain attendance at the WILIG Luncheon on which I previously posted – note that former U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor has been added as a luncheon speaker – I’m pleased to note 2 other events in which I’ll be participating:

► I will have the immense honor of serving as discussant for the Grotius Lecture, a keynote event 5-6:30 p.m. Wednesday, April 9. Delivering the lecture will be Radhika Coomaraswamy, whose former posts include Special Representative of the U.N. Secretary-General on Children & Armed Conflict and U.N. Special Rapporteur on Violence against Women. Her talk is entitled “Women and Children: The Cutting Edge of International Law.”

► During the ASIL Annual General Meeting set for 2:30-4 p.m. Thursday, April 10, I look forward to the opportunity to launch ASIL’s Benchbook on International Law, a just-completed volume for which I’m honored to be Editor-in-Chief. (Beta version now online; keep checking here for the final version.) About 4 dozen ASIL member colleagues contributed to this multiyear project intended to aid judges and litigants in federal courts; it will be great to demonstrate the Benchbook and give a heartfelt thanks to all who helped.

You can still register for the meeting here. Would be great to see you there.
