Mailing Lists to Join

In addition to joining the ILS email list, we also recommend you subscribe to the following:

  • American Society of International Law: ASIL is the main hub of international legal debate, exchange, cooperation etc. They have advisory boards on all kinds of international law issues, including human rights, international criminal law, environmental law, law of armed conflict, and international economic law. They have publications, education resources, and job postings. They also post events, developments, and handbooks. Finally, they publish the American Journal of International Law, a journal you will rely heavily on if you ever write a paper on international law issues. BU is a partner of ASIL and BU students get 50% off of membership prices. They have an annual meeting in Washington D.C. in March, and we are trying to organize a trip to the conference as ILS. Professor Ingber is a co-chair in the conference and it is the main meeting of all international lawyers and academics in the country (therefore a great opportunity to network and be inspired).
  • ABA Section of International Law: The ABA Section of International Law is the leader in the development of policy in the international arena, the promotion of the rule of law and the education of international law practitioners. The Section focuses on a full range of international legal issues and is involved in a wide variety of substantive legal activities.
  • BNID: The Boston Network for International Development (BNID) was founded in 2004 with the goal of serving as a point of connection for groups and individuals in the Boston area who are concerned with issues of international development (ID) and global justice.
