ASIL-West, a pilot project that took shape in fall 2006, is designed to enhance the Society's regional presence. ASIL-West will bring together academics, members of the NGO community, and private and public sector practitioners of international law and its myriad subfields. Co-chairs hope soon to add a representative of the private sector to their number. Events will range from sponsorship of conferences to receptions with judges, executive officials, and nonlawyers whose work touches on international law and policy. Also planned is educational outreach to news media; to high school, college, and law students; and to the public at large. In its first year ASIL-West efforts will focus on Northern California. Quick expansion south, north, and east is planned, so that eventually the project will provide a regional hub for ASIL members throughout the western states. We welcome all ASIL members, established and new (www.asil.org to become a member), to join us in this fledgling project. Please send us your comments and program ideas, and let us know how you'd like to help out.
