American Society of International Law (ASIL)
Teaching International Law Interest Group (TILIG)
2013 Biennial Conference
"Teaching International Law Outside Law Schools"
April 12, 2013 - Cancelled
While we were delighted to receive a number of excellent proposals for the ASIL’s Teaching International Law Interest Group conference on Teaching International Law Outside of Law Schools, we did not receive a sufficient number such that we could be confident moving forward with the conference.
Our principal concern is to ensure that great work receives appropriate attention. Based on the submission and other correspondence we have received, we do not see evidence of sufficient interest to sustain this effort in this format at this time. As a result, we have decided to cancel the April 12 conference.
We continue to contemplate other possibilities such as sponsoring a panel as part of another conference or possibly organizing this conference in conjunction with another conference. If we do come up with a more viable conference project, then we will get back in touch with you.
Clearly more scholars are teaching international law in institutions other than law schools, and this is a welcome development. In coming years, we would like TILIG to contribute to the sensible development and teaching of these courses. However, this conference does not appear to be the most prudent first step. We are tremendously grateful to all who expressed interest in and provided assistance with this project and wish that the outcome were otherwise.
Again thanks and best wishes.
Karen Bravo and Mark Shulman, Co-Chairs of TILIG
