It's my pleasure to welcome blogreaders to the biennial conference of the American Society of International Law International Economic Law Interest Group. It's organized in partnership with the George Washington University School of Law, which will host the event, and the Federal Trade Commission.
The theme of the conference is "Re-Conceptualizing International Economic Law: Bridging the Public/Private Divide."
Panels include both prominent and up-and-coming international law scholars and practitioners from across the world. Panels will address an array of issues in international economic law, including:
► Role and development of the multilateral trading system;
► World Trade Organization;
► Foreign investment;
► Bilateral and regional trade and investment agreements;
► International development law; and
► International financial regulation.
The conference features keynote lectures by Ralph Steinhardt (George Washington Law) and the Honorable Donald C. Pogue (Chief Judge, U.S. Court of International Trade).
IntLawGrrls contributors scheduled to take part include Rebecca Bratspies (CUNY Law), Cecily Rose (Cambridge), and yours truly, Elizabeth Trujillo (Suffolk Law). I'm an organizer of the conference, along with my fellow officers of the Interest Group: Sungjoon Cho (Chicago-Kent Law), Claire Kelly (Brooklyn Law), and Jason Yackee (Wisconsin Law).
