The ILS’s annual conference, iLaw2019: The ILS Global Forum on International Law will take place in February 2019. Similar to previous conferences, the iLaw2019 will contain three simultaneous tracks, each with four sessions throughout the day: (1) the ICDR arbitration track, (2) the litigation track, and (3) the business transactions track. In addition, the iLaw2019 will have one opening plenary session, a luncheon speaker, and one closing plenary session. Submissions appropriate for each of the three tracks will be considered, and ideas for the opening and closing sessions are welcome as well.
Each proposal should contain a suggested title and a description of the panel of no more than 200 words. Identification of proposed speakers is not necessary at this time, although it is important to emphasize that the ILS is committed to ensuring diversity and inclusion on all panels.
The iLaw2019 Steering Committee will evaluate and consider all proposals. Based on the limited number of panel presentations during the conference and potential high volume of proposals, we are unable to select all submissions. Thank you for your time and commitment to the ILS and the iLaw2019, and we look forward to receiving your submissions!
Please email your proposal(s) by July 20, 2018 to Ana Barton (, Jacqueline Villalba ( and Kristin Drecktrah Paz (
