The American Branch of the International Law Association (ABILA) and the International Law Students Association (ILSA) welcome you to the annual International Law Weekend (ILW) conference in New York City. This exciting event brings together hundreds of practitioners, law professors, members of governmental and non-governmental organizations, and students. The theme of ILW 2016 is “International Law 5.0.” We all know the world is changing at an accelerating rate and those changes pose real challenges for our profession. From technological advances to environmental transformations, international lawyers are forced to confront emerging forces and new scenarios. Even settled principles of law are no longer settled. These tectonic shifts have been felt throughout the geography of international law. Legal professionals at every level – local, national, regional, and international – must change their approaches, indeed their practices, to meet a changing world. Innovation will become necessary for survival. ILW 2016 will explore these issues through a collection of engaging and provocative panels.
