Conference: International Law Weekend 2014

The American Branch of the International Law Association and the International Law Students Association will host International Law Weekend 2014, October 23-25, 2014, in New York City. The conference theme is "International Law in a Time of Chaos." The schedule of events is here. Here's the idea:
The unifying theme for this year’s meeting is International Law in a Time of Chaos. The role of international law in conflict mitigation remains key – whether by building commercial links between states, fighting corruption, improving democratic governance, or providing methods for resolving international and ethnic disputes. International Law Weekend 2014 will seek to address the role of public and private international lawyers in each of these tasks. Panel proposals may concern any aspect of international law, including trade, investment, arbitration, intellectual property, combatting corruption, labor standards in the global supply chain, and human rights, as well as issues of international organizations and international security.
