AUWCL Sponsors 19th Annual Grotius Lecture to Open 111th ASIL Annual Meeting
On April 12, American University Washington College of Law proudly sponsored the 19th Annual Grotius Lecture opening the American Society of International Law’s (ASIL) 111th Annual Meeting in Washington, D.C. Leading and emerging voices in international legal scholarship, policy, and practice gathered to discuss this year’s theme, “What International Law Values,” and considered the normative basis of international law and how those goals are realized in practice, including if international law should reflect the international community’s values and what constituencies ought to be considered in determining those values.
Almost 20 years ago, the International Legal Studies Program at American University Washington College of Law and ASIL launched the Grotius Lecture as an opening event for ASIL's annual meeting. The event is named after Hugo Grotius, who is considered the father of international law, and provides a forum for respected diplomats, scholars, and lawyers to present their ideas to ASIL members and the international legal community.
