The ASIL Annual Meeting is once again behind us, but the 2015 Meeting proved to not disappoint. Over the course of 4 days, more than 1000 individuals from 53 countries participated in countless panel discussions, roundtables, lectures, interest group meetings and luncheons. Judge Kenneth Keith of the International Court of Justice gave his thoughts on the 400 year old legacy of Grotius; Michael Reisman of Yale Law School delivered remarks on the evolution of minimum standards in customary international law; and Department of Defense General Counsel Stephen Preston provided the latest installment in a series of policy address by the Obama Administration focused on the U.S. use of military force since 9/11.
For its part, ASIL Cables captured 43 of this year’s events as well as updates from 9 interest groups. We consider this a great success and would like to thank everyone who contributed their time and efforts towards making this blog such an informative tool available to both meeting participants and non-participants. We hope that students and practitioners of international law will find our summaries helpful as they utilize the substance of these discussions to advance their own work.
In addition, videos from the Meeting are now available to view on the ASIL website. Fourteen sessions, including "International Law and the Future of the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict," "Litigating the Counterterrorism Activities of the United States in Foreign Courts," "Economic Sanctions – Hot Topics in 2015," and all keynote addresses are available to view. Photos from the Annual Meeting will be posted to ASIL's Facebook account in the coming weeks.
The 2016 Annual Meeting will take place on March 31 - April 2, 2016 at the Hyatt Regency Capitol Hill. ASIL will post updates on the ASIL website as they become available.
Until next year!
