With the theme of “Empowerment,” the 2020 Virtual Annual Meeting of the American Bar Association International Law Section began on May 26 and continues through July 2, featuring more than 45 online programs encompassing a range of international law and empowerment issues over 38 days.
In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, the section is presenting a comprehensive look at legal industry disruption virtually and exploring ways lawyers can deal successfully with the changing landscape of the legal profession.
“Little did we know there was far more disruption to come in the span of just a few short months with the COVID-19 pandemic,” section Chair Lisa Ryan said. “While we had to cancel the in-person component of the annual meeting (originally scheduled for April), the need to offer this programming became more important than ever. In such turbulent times, it’s vital that we understand the industry disruption being caused and the path forward in critical areas of international law.”
During the next five weeks, leading experts will offer insights on cutting-edge strategies and trends across topics in both public and private international law, including dispute resolution, finance, artificial intelligence, corporate social responsibility and governance, mergers and acquisitions, migration and immigration, white-collar criminal law, alternative business structures and national security law.
