International Law at Home and Abroad: The Lessons of Avena and Medellin
January 16, 2014 12:45pm - 2:00pm
Are you interested in learning about the role of private sector lawyers in the practice of public international law? Or how lawyers navigate the boundaries between international law and domestic law, and between domestic courts and international tribunals? If so, the Stanford Program on International and Comparative Law and the International Law Society invite you to attend two events on Thursday, January 16, with Donald Donovan, the President of the American Society of International Law (ASIL), and ASIL Executive Director Elizabeth Andersen. ASIL President Donovan is a partner in the New York Office of Debevoise & Plimpton, where he is widely recognized as one of the country's most accomplished international arbitration lawyers. He has been described as "one of the world’s leading practitioners in both investment treaty and commercial arbitration."
Donovan will recount his experience in pursuing international dispute resolution litigation in both international and domestic fora -- including one stint litigating against SLS's own Allen Weiner in a case before the International Court of Justice in The Hague. Please join us on Thursday, January 16, from 12:45 - 2:00 pm in Room 285 for his talk entitled: "International Law at Home and Abroad: The Lessons of Avena and Medellin."
Sponsored by the Stanford Program on International and Comparative Law and the International Law Society.
