What Leading Professionals are Saying

The Section is an integral anchor for me to authentically express myself throughout my professional development. As a young lawyer, I appreciate the leadership opportunities in the Section. Additionally, the Section serves as a cutting-edge platform that promotes continuous growth, mentorship, and access to a streamlined networking system.

Participating in the Section has been an excellent experience, that has contributed tremendously to my practice. Having access to the most recent trends in international law through Section conferences, workshops, and publications has been very helpful in cross-border transactions. The personal and professional relationships built with Section members over the years is something that I especially treasure and allows me to have colleagues with whom I can discuss international legal issues.
