This year's Research Forum, co-sponsored by ASIL Academic Partner American University Washington College of Law, will include discussions of 70 innovative papers (chosen from nearly 200 submissions through a blind selection process), a talk with former International Court of Justice Judge Thomas Buergenthal, and a discussion of "Dispute Settlement with Iran: From the Hostage Crisis to the Nuclear Accord" with key negotiators from the US Department of State.
The forum will also include events designed to assist students and new professionals interested in pursuing a career in international law. For example, the "nternational Law Career Panel and Speed Mentoring Event" will feature practitioners from a variety of international law fields and a networking reception. Two librarians will lead a session on "International Law Research Strategies."
WilmerHale Senior Associate Dr. Daniel Costelloe will be a featured speaker at this event.
