ASIL – University of Washington School of Law International Law Career Panel and Speed Mentoring Event


The Society, in co-sponsorship with ASIL Academic Partner University of Washington School of Law, will host this forum to give law students and new legal professionals access to experienced international law practitioners. The event will begin with a panel discussion, led by ASIL Director of Education and Research D. Wes Rist, designed to showcase the various avenues that led the panelists to a career in international legal practice and to provide insight into professional development opportunities. Following the discussion, each panelist will host a table where a small group of students can spend 10-12 minutes talking with the professional. When time is up, students rotate to a new table, so that by the end of the evening participants have had the chance to learn about several different paths to international employment.

Participating panelists include:

  • Craig Chosiad, corporate counsel, Amazon
  • Melissa J. Durkee, professor, University of Washington School of Law
  • Alejandra Gonza, professor, University of Washington School of Law
  • D. Wes Rist, director of education and research, American Society of International Law
