ASIL Virtual Annual Meeting- 25-26 June 2020

Dear Colleagues,

On June 25-26, 2020, the American Society of International Law will present its first-ever Virtual Annual Meeting. Now in its 114th year, the ASIL Annual Meeting is one of the largest gatherings of international lawyers, scholars, judges, and diplomats in the world.

The meeting will offer 40 substantive sessions and hundreds of hours of special sessions, side events, and professional development opportunities created especially for the virtual meeting. The virtual platform will enable you to enjoy as many sessions as you wish, either as they are taking place or after their scheduled times. All of the sessions will continue to be available on-demand to registered attendees once the meeting has concluded.

The Society recognizes that many members of the international community are confronting serious personal and financial challenges as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Accordingly, all registration fees have been reduced by 25 percent, and the fee for students has been eliminated altogether.

Highlights of the meeting will include:

  • 40 substantive sessions, the majority of which will be held live
  • 50 hours of special sessions and side events, Interest Group gatherings, and "ask me anything" sessions with leaders in the field
  • 50 hours of social, networking, mentoring and career development sessions
  • Over 150 speakers drawn from every segment of the international law community and from related disciplines
  • Eight keynote sessions and named lectures featuring prominent figures in international law, including:
○     Elizabeth Odio Benito (Inter-American Court of Human Rights)
○     Daniel Bethlehem (Twenty Essex)
○     James Gathii (Loyola University Chicago School of Law)
○     Claudio Grossman (American University Washington College of Law)
