Call for Papers: International Law Weekend 2012 

In anticipation of International Law Weekend 2012 – the premier international law event of the fall season, to be held on October 25-27, 2012, in New York City – the sponsors would like to invite you and your colleagues to submit proposals for panels, roundtables, and lectures at International Law Weekend (ILW) 2012.

The overall theme of ILW 2012 is Ideas, Institutions, and Interests – Dynamics of Change in International Law. International Law Weekend is sponsored and organized by the American Branch of the International Law Association (“ABILA”) – which welcomes new members from academia, the practicing bar, and the diplomatic world – and the International Law Students Association (“ILSA”). ILW 2012 will be held in conjunction with the 91st annual meeting of the American Branch.

The program chairs invite proposals to be submitted on-line via the 2012 ILW Panel Proposal Submission Form on or before Friday, April 13, 2012. Please provide a title, brief description of the topic, and the names, titles, and affiliations of the chair and likely speakers – but also describe what you think would be the most engaging and exciting format, including ways to enhance participation by the audience.

One of the objectives of ILW 2012 is to promote new dialogues among scholars and practicing lawyers; so formats should include presenters with diverse experiences and perspectives. Additionally, extra consideration will be given to proposals including at least one law student or recent graduate. The 2012 ILW Program Committee Members are: Steve Hammond, Hughes Hubbard & Reed LLP, hammond@hugheshubbard.com; Nikolai B. Krylov, Winston & Strawn LLP, nkrylov@winston.com; Vivian Shen, International Law Students Association, vshen@ilsa.org; Mark R. Shulman, Pace Law School, MarkRShulman@gmail.com; Michael Shewchuk, United Nations Office of Legal Affairs, shewchuk@un.org; and Ruth Wedgwood, ABILA, rwedgwood@jhu.edu (Ex officio).
