October – Chaffetz Lindsey is pleased to again sponsor the upcoming International Law Weekend 2016 (ILW 2016), which will be held October 27-29, 2016, in New York City, and is organized by the American Branch of the International Law Association (ABILA) and the International Law Students Association (ILSA).
The unifying theme for ILW 2016 is International Law 5.0. It recognizes the world is changing at an accelerating rate. From technological advances to environmental transformations, international lawyers are forced to confront emerging forces and new scenarios. Even settled principles of law are no longer settled. These tectonic shifts have been felt throughout the geography of international law. Legal professionals at every level – local, national, regional, and international – must change their practice to meet a changing world. Innovation will become necessary for survival.
ILW 2016 will explore these issues through a collection of engaging and provocative panels. They will have a broad array of both public international law and private international law topics. The audience will include practitioners, academics, U.N. diplomats, business leaders, federal and state government officials, NGO leaders, journalists, students, and interested citizens.
The Opening Panel will take place on Thursday evening (10/27) at the New York City Bar Association. Through the generosity of Fordham Law School and its Leitner Center, the remainder of ILW 2016 will be held at the Fordham campus on 62d Street.
