Coming Soon: Virtual Annual Meeting

We are working to deliver as much of the cutting edge programming we had planned for New York to our Section members, future members, sponsors, and lawyers from around the world who are interested in international legal issues. In the coming weeks, we will be offering virtual participation for many of the more than 70 incredible programs we had planned for New York.

The theme for this year, and for the Annual Meeting, is Empowerment. While we may not have the opportunity to meet in person this year, we can still empower you in your career and professional development, which will be more important than ever in these difficult times.

Join us for this virtual experience and benefit from programming to help you develop business, develop a personal brand, plan financially, as well as incredible CLE programs on a broad range of current topics, including energy systems, cybersecurity, shareholder activism, the evolving international commercial courts and global arbitration centers, the changing landscape of the modern global workforce, climate finance, investing in legal cannabis, cross-border mediation under the Singapore Convention and exercising universal jurisdiction over human rights offenders. Stay tuned for an upcoming schedule of exciting programming and events for you to access from the comfort of your own home.
