International Law Society
The International Law Society (ILS) is the primary student organization concerning international law. ILS organizes panel discussions with leading attorneys, law professors and other experts on a wide array of international law topics. These include discussions on international treaty and trade law; international law bodies such as the International Criminal Court or the alternative dispute resolution mechanisms of the World Trade Organization; the differences between common law and the civil code; practicing law in the United States on behalf of international clients; and how to become dual-certified to practice law in multiple nations.
ILS also hosts multiple mixers throughout the academic year, including a mixer for international students at the Sandra Day O'Connor of Law. ILS facilitates student participation in the law school's International Rule of Law and Security program and the Washington D.C. program. The ILS Executive Board prides itself in its international diversity, with citizens of Albania, Brazil, the Republic of Ireland and the United States on the upcoming board. Many board members have also lived and worked abroad in a variety of countries, and can provide students with insights on living abroad.
