Government Lawyering and International Law

In celebration of the Journal’s thirty-fifth anniversary, the Yale Journal of International Law held a conference on "Government Lawyering and International Law" on Friday, February 26, 2010 at the Yale Law School.  The one-day conference brought together scholars and practitioners from around the world to discuss the unique responsibilities and challenges associated with government lawyers creating, interpreting, and abiding by international law.  YJIL was proud to organize this conference in affiliation with the American Society of International Law (ASIL).

The conference began with a keynote address by U.S. State Department Legal Adviser Harold Hongju Koh. The keynote address was followed by three outstanding panels. Panel topics, participants, and the day's schedule are available here.
