Room 3000 | Duke Law School
This event is invitation only.
The purpose of ASIL's International Law in Domestic Courts Interest Group is to promote informal, face-to-face dialogue among scholars who are interested in issues pertaining to the application of international law and foreign relations law in domestic courts. The group convenes a meeting once a year to provide an opportunity for interested scholars to present works-in-progress and exchange ideas in an informal atmosphere.
Duke Law professor Curt Bradley, also a participant, will be publishing International Law in the U.S. Legal System, a topic directly related to this conference, in early 2013.
For more information about ASIL or the conference, please visit ASIL's website.
