The American Society of International Law will be hosting its annual meeting from March 24-26, 2021. This year’s meeting will be taking place virtually and will offer over 50 hours of substantive content, including an entire track dedicated to professional development, comprising jobs skills workshops, mentoring sessions, “ask-me-anything” conversations with prominent international lawyers, and special sessions offering advice on international publishing and legal research. In addition, our virtual platform’s chat and video conferencing features will give attendees the opportunity to speak directly with each other in real time, as close as one can get to in-person networking these days.
Many of the panels will be followed by “Continue the Conversation” breakout rooms, where attendees can join via video and talk with the presenters. There will be over 150 speakers drawn from every segment of the international law community and from related disciplines. There will also be 8 keynote sessions and named lectures featuring prominent figures in international law, including: Louise Arbour (Special Representative of the UN Secretary-General for International Migration), Hannah Buxbaum (Indiana University Maurer School of Law), Yves Daudet (University of Paris I Panthéon-Sorbonne), Gabrielle K. MacDonald (Retired, Iran-US Claims Tribunal and former President Judge, International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia), Bernard H. Oxman (University of Miami School of Law), Mónica Pinto (University of Buenos Aires Law School), Lucy Reed (Arbitration Chambers), and Abdulqawi Ahmed Yusuf (President Judge, International Court of Justice).
