The American Branch of the International Law Association is organizing its annual International Law Weekend. This two-and-a-half-day conference features over 30 panels, and many of the world’s leading international lawyers and diplomats participate. This year, the event is scheduled for 28 - 30 October 2021 and will take place online. 

The theme selected for this year’s conference is Reinvesting in International Law, as follows:

Hindered by a retreat from multilateralism, the international legal community is struggling to respond to the global challenges of our day; climate change, economic inequality, impunity for atrocity crimes, and now the pandemic.  We are at a key inflection point in crafting our response to these challenges.  We must ask ourselves, “where is the international legal order meeting expectations and where is it falling short?”  Where should we reinforce the current system and where must we develop new solutions?  How can we revitalize our global health, economic, and human rights institutions to make them more durable and impactful?  Where do we require more robust legal frameworks and where, perhaps, do we need less regulation?  How should we tailor our reinvestment in international law?
