Keith Loken, on leave as SIL’s deputy policy officer, is back on temporary assignment at the Office of the Legal Adviser, U.S. Department of State, where he was most recently the assistant legal adviser for Private International Law.

Lisl Dunlop, based in New York, is counsel in the Antitrust Group of Shearman & Sterling. She is vice-chair of the International Antitrust Law Committee and Section Liaison to the ABA Section of Antitrust Law.

In this third “Policy Matters” column, we will be discussing many new international legal policy activities that have taken place in the Section of International Law (SIL) over the past six months. Just as our previous column featured a discussion of the Resolutions with Reports (R&R) process from a committee co-chair’s perspective, in this issue we provide insight into the Blanket Authority process from a committee vice chair who has been in the proverbial trenches.
