The Society's 114th Annual Meeting—and first Virtual Annual Meeting—took place June 25–26, 2020. The 2020 Annual Meeting theme, "The Promise of International Law," was an opportunity to reflect on the successes and failures of international law, while reaffirming our commitment to achieving its promise of a more just and peaceful world.
One of our Annual Meeting traditions is the “L” Reception honoring current and former members of the State Department’s Office of the Legal Adviser. This year, in lieu of a reception, we will present a roundtable of current government legal advisers from the United Kingdom, Germany, and the United States, hosted by ASIL Law Firm Partner Arnold & Porter, and moderated by former Legal Adviser John Bellinger. The panel will discuss the challenges of managing a government legal office during a pandemic as well as other current international legal issues facing their governments.
