ILW is sponsored and organized by the American Branch of the International Law Association (ABILA) and the International Law Students Association (ILSA).
This annual conference attracts an audience of more than one thousand practitioners, academics, diplomats, members of the governmental and nongovernmental
sectors, and most importantly, foreign policy and law students who are learning about the range of practice and career opportunities.
ILW 2014 will be held in conjunction with the annual meeting of the American Branch in Manhattan at the Association of the Bar of the
City of New York at 42 West 44th Street on Thursday evening, October 23, and at the Fordham Law School at Lincoln Center on October 24-25, 2014.
We expect an audience that will include practitioners, professors, UN diplomats, business leaders, federal and state government officials,
NGO leaders, writers, journalists, and interested citizens. This year, we plan to have a broad array of public international law topics,
but will also have dedicated tracks of private international law topics in each program slot. Questions regarding ILW 2014 can be directed
The unifying theme for this year’s meeting is International Law in a Time of Chaos. The role of international law in conflict mitigation
remains key – whether by building commercial links between states, fighting corruption, improving democratic governance, or providing
methods for resolving international and ethnic disputes. International Law Weekend 2014 will seek to address the role of public and private
international lawyers in each of these tasks. Panel proposals may concern any aspect of international law, including trade, investment,
arbitration, intellectual property, combatting corruption, labor standards in the global supply chain, and human rights, as well as issues
of international organizations and international security.
