On Monday, December 12, 2022, the American Society of International Law presented the 2022 Champion of International Rule of Law Award to Dr. Fiona Hill for her distinguished service to our country and her defense of the rule of law. A former National Security Council official and a senior fellow at The Brookings Institution, Dr. Hill is a highly regarded expert on Russian and European affairs whose frank and compelling testimony during the first Trump impeachment inquiry brought her international renown. At a time when public service is often undervalued, she exemplifies the virtues of integrity and professionalism that are more important today than ever before. The gala took place at the New-York Historical Society, 170 Central Park West in New York City.
Following the presentation, Dr. Hill participated in an informal on-stage conversation with senior political analyst and CNN anchor John Avlon, who also served as the moderator at the Society's 2019 Gala when Amal Clooney, President of the Clooney Foundation for Justice, and Brad Smith, President and Chief Legal Officer of Microsoft, were recognized.

The Society thanks the Gala Host Committee and the Gala Sponsors for making the 2022 Gala a great success.
