ILW is sponsored and organized by the American Branch of the International Law Association (ABILA) – which welcomes new members from academia, the practicing bar, and the diplomatic world – and the International Law Students Association (ILSA). This annual conference attracts an audience of more than eight hundred academics, diplomats, members of the governmental and nongovernmental sectors, and foreign policy and law students.

Global Problems, Legal Solutions: Challenges for Contemporary International Lawyers

ILW 2015 is scheduled to be held at 42 West 44th Street on Thursday evening, November 5, and at Fordham Law School at Lincoln Center on November 6 - 7, 2015.

The opening panel, "The Rule of Law and the Post 2015 Development Agenda" will be a dialogue with senior UN officials and representatives of member states on efforts to advance the UN Rule of Law Initiative and to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) over the next fifteen years. This event has been organized by ABILA in consultation with the ABA’s Section on International Law and the New York City Bar Association.

The ABILA Annual meeting will also be held during ILW 2015 at the same location. We expect the audience to include practitioners, academics, UN diplomats, business leaders, federal and state government officials, NGO leaders, writers, journalists, and interested citizens. We plan to have a broad array of both public international law and private international law topics in each program timeslot. For questions regarding ILW 2015, please contact conferences@ilsa.org.
