The Blacks of the American Society of International Law Task Force (BASIL) will host an international law careers speed mentoring event that will expose law students and new legal professionals to experienced international practitioners. Attendees will participate in a 90 minute “speed mentoring” activity, where mentors will host a table where a small group of students can spend 10-12 minutes asking more personal, directed questions of the participants. Participants will then be able to rotate to a new table, gaining the chance to learn about several different avenues of international employment.
The speed mentoring event will be held on-site at the 111th Annual Meeting of the American Society of International Law.
The BASIL Task Force is an initiative of the American Society of International Law designed to help to increase the number of blacks in international law. The speed mentoring event will focus on black law students to increase their awareness of the unique experiences they would bring to this exciting field of law and to encourage them to choose international law as a career path. ASIL is pleased to be working with the Black Law Students Association (BLSA) to promote this event.
Participants Will Represent the Following Sectors:
- Academic - Government
- International Organizations
- Judge Advocate General’s (JAG) Corps
- Non-Governmental Organizations
