International Law Career Panel and Speed Mentoring Event


The American Society of International Law (ASIL), in co-sponsorship with American University Washington College of Law and the ASIL New Professionals Interest Groups, will host a unique forum that will expose law students and new legal professionals to experienced international practitioners.The event will begin with a brief introduction of the panelists and several questions presented by D. Wes Rist, ASIL’s Director of Education and Research, designed to provide insight into professional development opportunities, as well as to illustrate the various avenues the panelists took into international legal practice. Following the group discussion, each panelist will “host” a table where a small group of students can spend 10-12 minutes asking more personal, directed questions of the participants. Students will then be able to rotate to a new table, gaining the chance to learn about several different avenues of international employment.

Panelists include:

  • Adom Cooper, program analyst, Bureau of Diplomatic Security, U.S. Department of State
  • Jennifer Holmes, associate, Covington & Burling, LLP
  • Haris Hussain, Caribbean Relations, UN High Commissioner for Refugees
  • Steven Koh, trial attorney, Office of International Affairs, U.S. Department of Justice
  • Captain Megan C. Mallone, Office of the Judge Advocate General, U.S. Air Force
  • Kelsey Romeo-Stuppy, staff attorney, Action on Smoking and Health
  • Hardy Vieux, legal director, Human Rights First
