The American Society of International Law’s Government Attorneys Interest Group invites all ASIL members and the general public to join group members and ASIL leadership for a live, online conversation on the role of the “diplomat-lawyer.” In this time of global crisis, diplomacy and the law intersect in increasingly meaningful and vitally important ways. Speakers from both the United States government and the Society’s International Legal Attaches of Washington (INT-LAW) group will lead a discussion in which they share their experiences serving in legal roles that also have a diplomatic dimension.
This webinar will take place live online via Zoom. Registration is free, but required. The participation link will be sent to all who register online.
