International Law Weekend 2017

Friday, October 20, 2017 - 3:00pm to 4:30pm

The unifying theme for ILW 2017 is International Law in Challenging Times. 

Can international law rise to the challenge? For decades, international law has provided legal solutions to global problems through the development of substantive areas of law, court systems, and a framework for modern international relations. Now we must ask, is this post-WWII regime still relevant? Can it meet the needs of the global community? The rapidly changing global landscape will test the adaptability and dynamism of international law. Unprecedented health crises, massive refugee outflows, climate change, gender inequality and other global challenges require innovative solutions. This is an opportunity for international law to reestablish its strong connection with the global community it serves. Panels at ILW 2017 will examine current global challenges, potential solutions, and a broad range of dynamic issues in both public and private international law. 

On Friday at 3pm, Faiza Patel will be speaking on a panel entitled "Surveillance, Privacy & Human Rights: Outlook for 2018."
