Welcome



Welcome to the American Branch of the International Law Association!

On this website you will find information about the American Branch's conferences, committees, and publications, as well as the Branch's connections to the work of the International Law Association (ILA) headquartered in London.

The ILA and its American Branch have a rich history and provide a wide range of opportunities for early career professionals as well as established international lawyers. The American Branch encourages its members to initiate their own projects, in existing committees or new ones tailored to a specific purpose.

We invite you to join the American Branch and participate in its important work.

The American Branch and the International Law Students Association jointly sponsored ILW 2014.
