Co-sponsored each year by the American Society of International Law, International Law Weekend (ILW) brings together more than 1,000 students, practitioners, academics, government officials, NGO representatives and members of the U.N. and the diplomatic and consular communities. More than 30 expert panels will explore the many roles that international law plays in addressing the conference theme. The draft program is available here

ILW begins Thursday evening, November 5, 2015, with a distinguished opening panel at the House of the Association of the Bar of the City of New York.  A reception sponsored by Shearman & Sterling LLP will follow and is open to all conference attendees.
