Our Programs

The Section hosts an Annual Conference in the Spring, rotating between Washington, DC and New York City. The Annual Conference includes three days of programming, various receptions and events and attracts about 1,000 participants from over 50 countries. The Section also hosts several international Standalone and International Forums each year. Standalone programs differ from Seasonal Meetings in that they are 1-2 days in length and host a smaller number of participants.

Join the Section of International Law

Our Section’s members are spread across over 100 countries, yet our work is conducted with a sense of close community across boundaries of all kinds. Our members find leadership opportunities and visibility in our more than sixty committees (some focused on specific subject matters, others on a geography or other affinity) and our growing number of active city chapters.
