First Annual International Law Career Fair at Fordham Law School

The American Branch of the International Law Association (ABILA), the International Section of the American Bar Association, the American Society of International Law, and the International Law Students Association (ILSA) are jointly hosting the First Annual International Law Career Fair at Fordham Law School in New York City on Saturday, October 23 from 2:00 p.m. - 6:00 p.m. This excellent program is part of the International Law Weekend Conference (ILW) hosted each year by ABILA and ILSA.

The Career Fair will include a series of panel presentations and Q&A sessions from practicing lawyers speaking about their own career paths and about employment prospects in such areas as international arbitration, immigration law, international business law, working for international NGOs, and practicing international law in a governmental setting. Attendance is free, and no prior registration is required.

Students are also invited to attend the other panels of the International Law Weekend Conference, which begins on Thursday evening and runs throughout the day on Friday and also on Saturday morning. ILW is an exciting event that brings together hundreds of practitioners, members of the governmental and non-governmental sectors, and students to explore emerging issues in international law. The three-day conference, held October 22-24, will feature over 30 panels that will address the overall conference theme of "International Law and Institutions: Advancing Justice, Security and Prosperity.” Students may attend the conference at no cost.
