(Go On! is an occasional item on symposia and other events of interest)
Blogreaders in D.C. this week for the annual meeting of the Association of American Law Schools (prior posts available here), take note of this side event:
U.S. State Department Legal Adviser Harold Hongju Koh and other experts will take part in an early-evening roundtable discussion on legal scholarship on Friday, January 6, 2012. (credit for 2010 photo of Koh)
The roundtable, entitled Reassessing International Law Scholarship, will take place very close to the AALS conference hotel -- at Tillar House, the headquarters of the American Society of International Law, 2223 Massachusetts Avenue, N.W. (DuPont Circle Metro stop). The program will last from 6 to 7:30 p.m., and a reception will follow.
Promised: "a free-flowing discussion" among "colleagues with varying professional and theoretical perspectives," who "will evaluate contemporary international law scholarship, recent trends, and what lies on the horizon for our field."
Moderator Lori Damrosch (left), who is the Henry L. Moses Professor of Law and International Organization and the Hamilton Fish Professor of International Law and Diplomacy at Columbia Law School, as well as the Co-Editor-in-Chief of the American Journal of International Law, will moderate. She'll pose questions to a roundtable comprising, in addition to Koh:
► Yours truly, Diane Marie Amann (right), Emily and Ernest Woodruff Chair in International Law, University of Georgia School of Law, and an immediate past Vice President of ASIL;
► Curtis Bradley (left), Richard A. Horvitz Professor of Law and Professor of Public Policy Studies, Duke Law School, and a member of the AJIL Board of Editors; and
► Makau Mutua (right), Dean, SUNY Distinguished Professor and the Floyd H. & Hilda L. Hurst Faculty Scholar at Buffalo Law School, The State University of New York, and an ASIL Vice President.
