IntLaw(Grrls) @ AALS

To head off the complaint of some last year respecting AALS programming of interest to specialists in international, comparative, and transnational law -- a complaint undercut in this 11-month-old post -- it's our pleasure to offer a list of all such events on the program of the 2010, annual meeting of the Association of American Law Schools, to be held January 6-10 in New Orleans.
The list is complete as possible (note that some meal sessions require advance ticket purchases). The list reflects the exercise of 2 prerogatives: sessions sponsored by the Section on International Law, of which yours truly is Chair this year, are featured in pink, and all IntLawGrrls and guests/alumnae are featured by hypertext and photo.
Here goes:
