ASIL CLE INSTITUTE: Not Just State: International Law in the U.S. Government

On Wednesday, February 27th, the Government Attorneys Interest Group of the American Society of International Law will hold a continuing legal education course featuring practicing international lawyers in a variety of positions within the U.S. government. This panel, “Not Just State: International Law in the U.S. Government,” will discuss the role that international law plays in the day-to-day practice of attorneys not only in the State and Defense Departments, but also in legal offices outside of the most commonly-understood “international” agencies.

This event is for government lawyers to interface with each other, for private sector and NGO attorneys who want to gain a better understanding of the varying roles of international law in the U.S. government, and for law students seeking international legal careers in government service.

This event is free to those not seeking to earn CLE credit and takes place:
