Attendance at the ASIL Annual Meeting is an opportunity to meet with international law librarian colleagues, publishers and exhibitors of international law materials, and other members of the international law community. We look forward to seeing you. The information below is from the ASIL Annual Meeting brochure.
The 101st Annual Meeting will challenge scholars and practitioners to reflect on "The Future of International Law." While the future cannot be predicted, certain trends are shifting the stakes of the international order, including: growing economic disparity, global pandemic threats, demographic pressures, resource scarcities and environmental degradation, and new threats to security. The 101st Annual Meeting will generate and inform ideas about the future of international law and the role of international lawyers. Understanding and molding our transition into the future will require critical thinking, creativity, interdisciplinary focus, and willingness to take risks. Please join us.
