A couple dozen of us posed Friday with our foremost foremother, Eleanor Roosevelt, just before the annual luncheon of ASIL’s Women in International Law Interest Group. A highlight was WILIG’s conferring of the 2016 Prominent Woman in International Law Award upon one of our own: Elizabeth “Betsy” Andersen, since 2014 the Director of the American Bar Association Rule of Law Initiative, and before that, ASIL’s Executive Director and Executive Vice President.
