International Law Weekend 2016: Call for Panel Proposals

Deadline: April 9, 2016

International Law Weekend (ILW) 2016 will be held 27-29 October 2016 in New York City, New York, USA. Additional information about the conference will be added regularly. If you would like to receive updates about ILW 2016 please fill out the ILW Updates & Registration Reminder form.

The unifying theme for ILW 2016 is International Law 5.0

    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 diverse collection of engaging and provocative panels.
