International Law Weekend 2019

From October 10-12, 2019, the American Branch of the International Law Association
will convene its annual International Law Weekend (ILW) conference in New York City.
The theme of ILW 2019 is The Resilience of International Law.

ILW 2019 begins Thursday evening, October 10, 2019, at the New York City Bar
Association (42 W. 44th Street) with the Opening Plenary Panel. Moderated by ABILA
President Leila Sadat, speakers include H.E. Judge Kimberly Prost (International
Criminal Court), Mr. Miguel de Serpa Soares (U.N. Under-Secretary-General for Legal
Affairs), and Dr. Christopher Ward SC (President of the International Law
Association). A reception sponsored by Debevoise & Plimpton immediately follows the
Plenary Panel. The conference continues Friday and Saturday, October 11-12, 2019, at Fordham University School of Law (150 West 62nd Street) and features 35 panels on a range of topics. Keynote speakers include Professor William Burke-White (Director of Perry World House, University of Pennsylvania Law School ) and Ambassador Stephen Rapp (Former U.S. Ambassador-at-Large for War Crimes Issues). Multiple panels are
designated for continuing legal education (CLE) credit.

ILW 2019 presents an opportunity for policymakers, practitioners, academics, and
students of international law to take stock of the recent successes and failures of
international law while reaffirming its resilience to tackle future challenges. ILW 2019
seeks to answer whether its theme—The Resilience of International Law—is a question
or an affirmation.
Registration is required to attend International Law Weekend. ABILA offers free
admission to students and charges a nominal fee to others thanks to the generous support of our sponsors. For more information or to register, visit the event website at http://www.ilaamericanbranch.org/ilw.
