1. International Law Weekend 2020. The American Branch of the International Law Association has announced that International Law Weekend 2020 will take place online from 22 – 24 October 2020, hosted by Arbitration Place, with the theme “International Law in Challenging Times.” From shifting political alliances to changing trade and economic relations, the world around us is undergoing profound transformations. The backlash against globalization has resulted in increased suspicion of multilateralism – and escalating populism. Yet, the world is more interconnected than ever. What is the role of international law in this changing and often contradictory world? What could and should international lawyers do? How can international institutions become more successful? ILW 2020 will respond to some of these questions and discuss how international law can help address these new challenges. A number of panels will be designated for continuing legal education. A reduced registration fee applies before 30 September. Please see here for more information. Register here.

2. Crossing Borders, Breaking Borders: New Ideas about Migration, Secession, and Political Freedom Webinar. The Law & Economics Center at George Mason University Antonin Scalia Law School and Indiana University Bloomington’s Maurer School of Law are hosting a webinar on Crossing Borders, Breaking Borders: New Ideas about Migration, Secession, and Political Freedom on Thursday 17 September 2020.
