ILS Chair’s News & Notes

Dear Friends,

Happy New Year! January is a great month full of a year’s worth of opportunities and possibilities. In the next couple of weeks, and only for the next couple of weeks, you will receive emails and phone calls from the Board, EC Members, iLaw Steering Committee, and Vis Pre-Moot Committee about participating to the ILS Winter Meeting, attending the iLaw2020, and volunteering to arbitrate at the Vis Pre-Moot. This is the trifecta of asks because it’s the trifecta of premier events.

All ILS Members are invited and welcomed to attend the ILS Winter Meeting. At this meeting, the Board and EC receive reports from the Standing Committees, review the Budget, and vote on pertinent Section issues. All ILS Members, friends, colleagues, and contacts are encouraged to attend the iLaww2020. This is your Section’s premier global forum on international law. This conference offers a track for international litigation, international arbitration, and international corporate transactions. iLaw2020 is a must attend.

All ILS Members are gently reminded that the Richard DeWitt Memorial Pre-Moot Vis Competition is also a one-of-a-kind. This event is sponsored by the ILS for the benefit of law students practicing to compete in Vienna. This is a feel-good event with handsome CLE credits.
