IntLaw Canada-bound

What's wrong with how we teach and write international law?
The American Society of International Law and the Association of American Law Schools will look for answers to that question in a joint meeting to be held mid-June in Vancouver, B.C., Canada.
Having served on the program committee, I'm pleased to report that each session will feature at least 1 woman, occasionally 2. They're highlighted in this list of panels:
Monday, June 18

"A Conversation Between...": Harold Hongju Koh, dean, Yale; Stephen Toope, president, British Columbia. Diane Marie Amann, California-Davis (IntLawGrrls' own Grace O'Malley), moderates.
Those invited to present works in progress also include lots of women, among them IntLawGrrls' own Nanny of the Windward Maroons (Karen Bravo, Indiana-Indianapolis) and Mata Hari (Hari Osofsky, Oregon).
