ASIL early bird alert

Early bird discounts for the annual meeting of American Society of International Law expire this Friday, February 11. Register here now before costs go up.
The theme for this year's annual meeting -- the Society's 105th -- is “Harmony and Dissonance in International Law.” The meeting will take place March 23 through 26, 2011, at the Ritz Carlton Hotel, 1150 22nd Street, N.W., Washington, D.C.
The full program is here. Among the highlights:
► Grotius Lecture by Nobel Prizewinning economist Amartya Sen (prior IntLaw Grrls posts here).
► Address to WILIG, the Women in International Law Interest Group, by IntLawGrrl Lucy Reed (right), ASIL's immediate past president.
► Award of the Goler T. Butcher Medal to IntLawGrrls guest/alumna Gay McDougall (near right), U.N. Independent Expert on Minorities. (The medal's namesake is herself an IntLawGrrls foremother.)
Keep an eye out for IntLawGrrls' annual "Women @ ASIL" feature (previous posts here, here, here, and here).
