• A Forum for the Practice of International Law


The ILS is a forum for the exchange of hot-button, need-to-know information and best practices that impact the practice of international law.

The International Law Section of The Florida Bar (ILS) was founded in 1981 to provide an organization for members in good standing who have an interest in the field of international law. It is also a forum for the sharing of knowledge, experience, and “best practices” that may improve the administration and application of the statutes, rules and regulations of international law and enhance the proficiency of practitioners.

The term “international law” includes foreign and comparative law.  It is defined as the practice of law dealing with issues, problems, or disputes arising from aspects of the relations between or among states and international organizations, between or among nationals of different countries, or between a state and a national of another state, including transnational business transactions, multinational taxation, customs, and trade.
