ASIL Research Forum

Fifth Annual ASIL Research Forum

October 22-24, 2015
American University Washington College of Law

4801 Massachusetts Ave NW
Washington, DC 20008

The Research Forum, a Society initiative introduced in 2011, aims to provide a setting for the presentation and focused discussion of works-in-progress. All ASIL members are invited to attend the Forum, whether presenting a paper or not.

This year's Research Forum, co-sponsored by ASIL Academic Partner American University Washington College of Law, included expert-led discussions of 70 innovative papers (chosen from nearly 200 submissions through a blind selection process), a talk with former International Court of Justice Judge Thomas Buergenthal, and a discussion of "Dispute Settlement with Iran: From the Hostage Crisis to the Nuclear Accord" with key negotiators from the U.S. Department of State.

The Forum also included events designed to assist students and new professionals interested in pursuing a career in international law. For example, the "International Law Career Panel and Speed Mentoring Event" featured practitioners from a variety of international law fields and a networking reception. Two expert librarians will lead a session on "International Law Research Strategies."

Stay tuned for announcements regarding the 2016 Research Forum.
